KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Georgia was about to make it a perfect sweep against the Lady Vols on Sunday.

Tennessee was unable to rally late, falling 57-55.

The last time these two teams met was in Knoxville with Georgia erasing a double-digit deficit to hand Tennessee its first SEC loss on the season and the Bulldogs’ first win in Knoxville since 1996.

This time around, Tennessee found themselves having to dig out of a hole.

It was a slow start for the Lady Vols at Stegeman Coliseum on Sunday.

Following a 24-point second half against No. 2 South Carolina, Rennia Davis opened scoring for the Tennessee with a layup to give the orange and white an early 2-0 advantage.

But that would only be one of four field goals made in the first half.

Tennessee could not get their shots to fall and went scoreless for an 8-minute stretch until Davis knocked one down with 90 seconds left in the opening period to make it an 11-6 game.
