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.

Reserve center Shala Crawford enjoyed a career game against overmatched Hampton. 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. Sophomore center Tawana McDonald led Georgia (10-1)

Don't tell Jan van Breda Kolff and his Vanderbilt Commodores the National Invitation Tournament is for losers. Dan Langhi scored a career-high 19 points off the bench as visiting Vanderbilt notched its first 20-win season in four years with a 72-68 victory over Wake Forest in the second round last night. "I said our younger players are going to benefit the most from this and a guy like Dan Langhi has gotten better and better," said Van Breda Kolff. "We told our guys [the NIT]

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.

University of Georgia junior Blaise Kozeniewski of Highland High has been a key addition to the Bulldogs' baseball team, the defending national champion. Kozeniewski, who had starred the last two years for Camden County College, started in Georgia's first seven games. During that span, he hit .212, but led the Bulldogs with eight runs, and was tied for the lead in home runs, with two, and tied for second in RBIs, with six. North Carolina State lefthander Shawn Senior of Cherry Hill West became the first freshman pitcher to start on opening day for the Wolfpack.

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.

Georgia Davis Powers, 92, a giant in the fight for civil rights in Kentucky and the first African American woman elected to the state Senate, died Saturday at her brother's home in Louisville. "When you think of civil rights in Kentucky, you have to start with Georgia Davis Powers," said Kentucky State Sen. Gerald Neal, who says Powers inspired him into public service. She fought for fair housing and employment rights, became a close confidante of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and served 21 years in the state Senate.

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.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Bryan McLendon was a member of Georgia's coaching staff when James Franklin coached Vanderbilt to an upset victory of the 15th-ranked Bulldogs in 2013, the Commodores' first win over a top-25 team in five years. McLendon, who will serve as Georgia's interim head coach Saturday in a TaxSlayer Bowl matchup against Penn State, admired what Franklin did at Vanderbilt. And although Franklin has taken some heat since becoming head coach of the Nittany Lions, McLendon says he's "a heck of a coach.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The sidelines and the seats in the Georgia coaches' booth will look significantly different Saturday when the Bulldogs take on Penn State in the TaxSlayer Bowl.

Mark Richt, the Bulldogs' head coach for 15 seasons, was fired with the intention that he would coach in the bowl game, but he changed his mind after being introduced Dec. 4 as the new head coach at Miami.

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.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg confirmed Friday that he has filed paperwork with the NFL Draft Advisory Board to gauge where he might fall in the draft should he decide to skip his senior year with the Nittany Lions. But when it came to giving any indication about which way he might be leaning, Hackenberg was typically tight-lipped in an interview during Penn State's TaxSlayer Bowl media day at Beaver Stadium. On his anticipated evaluation by the advisory board, he said, "I don't know if we've gotten that back yet but that's normal protocol for juniors in that situation.

While Penn State answered one question Sunday by accepting a bid to the TaxSlayer Bowl for a matchup against Georgia, it - in the person of head coach James Franklin - responded to another question about whether a new offensive coordinator will be in place by the time the game is played on Jan. 2 in Jacksonville, Fla. "I hope to have the position filled in the next week and a half to two weeks or so," Franklin said Sunday night on a conference call....

NEW YORK - If you've been paying attention, then you know more than a few ranked teams have gotten knocked off by the Monmouths and Northern Iowas of the food chain in the early going. Ask Notre Dame, or even North Carolina. Then there's No. 8 Villanova, which hasn't lost a game in November since 2012 and now can't lose one until next year. Of course, the Wildcats have seldom lost in any month before March the last two seasons. Anyway, on Black Friday at the Barclays Center - which will be the site of opening-weekend NCAA Tournament games - the Wildcats improved to 6-0 with a 69-52 win over Georgia Tech (4-2)

ATLANTIC CITY - Betty Cantrell, a 20-year-old opera singer from Georgia, became Miss America 2016 Sunday night before a cheering crowd in Boardwalk Hall. History was also made when a contrite pageant official apologized to entertainer Vanessa Williams, who was stripped of the title as Miss America in 1984 after nude photos of her were published without her permission in Penthouse magazine. Cantrell, who is from Warner Robins, Ga., wowed the judges with her lovely version of the aria "Tu, tu Piccolo Iddio" from Puccini's Madama Butterfly . Cantrell has studied music at Wesleyan College and Mercer University in Macon and would eventually like to graduate from a conservatory for musical theater.

Willie Nelson is an extraordinary octogenarian. The 82-year-old Red Headed Stranger - still ponytailed, though now mostly gray - played outdoors Sunday at the Borgata Festival Park in Atlantic City, and he was frisky and inventive all night long. The tour stop with openers Old Crow Medicine Show was billed as a "Willie Nelson & Family" concert, but with Nelson's sons Lukas and Micah off backing up Neil Young this summer, the only family member on stage throughout the briskly paced 90-minute set was his piano-playing older sister Bobbie.
