ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Cori Chambers scored 21 points and Ashley Houts made four free throws in the final 30 seconds as No. 8 Georgia held off No. 11 Stanford 74-69 on Sunday.
Stanford (2-3) lost both games of its weekend road trip to the Southeastern Conference, falling to No. 4 Tennessee 77-60 on Friday.
Megan Darrah scored 15 points for No. 8 Georgia, which led by 14 points midway through the second half before Stanford cut the lead to 68-67.
Stanford's Jillian Harmon and J.J. Hones each missed free throws that could have tied the game before Houts, a freshman, sank two free throws with 30 seconds left for a 70-67 lead.
Harmon scored with 18 seconds left to again cut the lead to one. Houts added two free throws with 17 seconds left.
Candice Wiggins, who led Stanford with 24 points, missed a 3-pointer with about 5 seconds left, and Janese Hardrick padded the lead with two free throws. Hardrick scored 14 points.
Brooke Smith added 19 points and Jayne Appel had 16 for the Cardinal.
Georgia used only seven players as star forward Tasha Humphrey continues to serve a six-game suspension for being charged with underage possession of alcohol.
