Georgia women’s basketball advances in NCAA tourney, bounces Florida State

Javyn Nicholson was strong on the boards, helping the Georgia women's basketball team beat Florida State in the first round of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament on Friday in Iowa City, Iowa.

The Georgia women’s basketball team chopped up Florida State on Friday afternoon, pulling away for a 66-54 NCAA tournament victory.

The Lady Bulldogs (22-11) used a 17-2 run late in the third quarter and into fourth quarter action to take control of the game in Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa in reaching the Round of 32.

The Seminoles started strong, leading 18-13 through the first quarter before Georgia dug in.

The Bulldogs, who have appeared in 36 of the 41 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournaments, are now 9-0 all time against Florida State.

If chalk holds and Georgia’s next game is against Iowa, it will bring first-year Lady Bulldogs’ coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson full circle, as she grew up in Iowa and after two years at Georgia transferred back to play for the Hawkeyes to complete her collegiate career.
