It wasn't pretty, but Georgia coach Andy Landers is glad his No. 5 Lady Bulldogs were able to pull out victory over host Tennessee Tech. "It was tough to come in to a place like Tech and come out with a win," Landers said yesterday after the 77-72 victory. "They did a really good job. " Georgia (11-1), which has won four straight, took the lead for good on a three-pointer by Camille Murphy with 11:27 remaining in the game, making it 48-46. Georgia led by four when the lights in the arena went out with 3:52 remaining.

Crawford had a career-high 13 points and 15 rebounds in fifth-ranked Georgia's 107-46 rout of visiting Hampton last night. "This game meant a lot because of the way we played our last game here. I didn't want people to underestimate what we can do," Crawford said. A week ago, Georgia lost its Southeastern Conference opener to Louisiana State, 80-74.

Georgia's football team will spend the next two years on probation but escaped major sanctions yesterday when the NCAA took the unusual step of accepting the school's self-imposed penalties. The Bulldogs, who already had agreed to reduce their scholarships next year and cut their ties to prominent south Florida booster Dan Calloway, remain eligible to play in bowl games and appear on television. The university was cited mainly for its relationship with Calloway, a Palm Beach County, Fla., youth sport organizer who provided cash, meals and other benefits to high school players who were being recruited by Georgia.

Charlayne Hunter-Gault, national correspondent for PBS' "MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour," carved out a place for herself in American history in 1961 when she became the first black woman to be admitted to the University of Georgia. In the current issue of TV Guide, she talks about her experiences at the school she graduated from in 1963. " 'Char-layne,' they kept calling out from every direction, drawing my name as only Southerners can, so perfect in their pronunciation, so familiar and yet so distant.

Georgia suspended starting forward Steve Thomas and backup guard Tony Cole yesterday while university police investigated a report that a female student was raped in a dormitory. The suspensions occurred shortly before the 20th-ranked Bulldogs, who moved into the national rankings two days earlier for the first time this season, lost, 77-72, to No. 16 Alabama in a key Southeastern Conference game. "The situation was probably a distraction, but you can't really tell," Georgia coach Jim Harrick said.

Less than three weeks after receiving a vote of confidence from the athletic director, Georgia basketball coach Ron Jirsa was fired yesterday. Jirsa, who never held a head coaching job before he was picked to succeed Tubby Smith in 1997, had a two-year record of 35-30, including a disappointing 15-15 mark this season. Athletic director Vince Dooley, speaking during a hastily called news conference, said the main reason for the change was the Bulldogs' poor finish. Georgia lost its final four games and 11 of the last 14 to wind up at .500.

When former United Nations ambassador and civil rights leader Andrew Young campaigns for governor in the white neighborhoods of rural Georgia, he doesn't extend his hand first for a handshake. He doesn't slap white people on the shoulder or kiss their babies. "There's good reason. When I was growing up you could get killed for that, literally," said the black, 58-year-old former Atlanta mayor. His voice showed not anger, but an eagerness to make the issue clear. "Maybe you don't ever outgrow some of those cautions.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Christian Hackenberg couldn't stand the pain in his right shoulder any longer, so redshirt freshman Trace McSorley became Penn State's best hope to move his team's offense against Georgia on Saturday in the TaxSlayer Bowl. After a slow start, McSorley helped the Nittany Lions make up a 21-point deficit with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes. The Lions moved toward a potential game-tying touchdown, but a Hail Mary try on the last play fell incomplete, giving the Bulldogs a 24-17 victory at EverBank Field.

FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. - Gregg Garrity admits that he tries to keep his family connection as low-key as possible, that he doesn't initiate any reference to "The Catch," an event that is up there with the top legendary moments in Penn State football history. But when asked, he will come clean. And he was repeatedly asked by the media Thursday after Penn State completed its final practice for the TaxSlayer Bowl against Georgia on Saturday. Garrity's father, also named Gregg, made a diving catch of a 47-yard touchdown pass from Todd Blackledge that sparked the second-ranked Nittany Lions' 27-23 victory over No. 1 Georgia in the 1983 Sugar Bowl and gave them their first national championship.
