Associated Press

ATLANTA -- Tiaria Griffin scored a game-high 19 points on Friday as No. 22 Georgia overwhelmed George Washington 80-60.

Griffin came off the bench to shoot 50 percent from the field and behind the arc (4 of 8) in the opening round of Georgia State University's Thanksgiving Invitational. Erica Ford finished with 10 points and a game-high 11 rebounds for the Lady Bulldogs (7-0).

Georgia jumped out to a 17-point lead by the end of the first half, and only outscored the Colonels by three points in the second. George Washington trailed by 31 with 5:26 left to play, but went on a 14-5 run to close the deficit slightly.

Megan Nipe, averaging 19.5 points per game this season, shot just 2 of 8 from the field and was held to seven points for the Colonials (3-2), whose only other loss came against No. 8 Maryland earlier this season.
