GREENVILLE, S.C. --- The Georgia Lady Bulldog basketball team lost 72-48 to the top-seed South Carolina Gamecocks Friday in the quarterfinals of the 2017 Southeastern Conference Tournament at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

The No. 5 Gamecocks shot 44-percent from the floor while the Lady Bulldogs compiled a 28-percent clip. Georgia managed to win the rebounding margin, 40-36.

All-SEC second team recipient Pachis Roberts put up a team-high 15 points, her fifth straight double-digit performance. The redshirt senior guard/forward has averaged a team-best 14.5 points per game this season. Sophomore forward Caliya Robinson added 12 points and pulled in eight rebounds. On the glass, senior Halle Washington grabbed team-high nine rebounds.

The Lady Bulldogs held an early edge in the first quarter before the Gamecocks went on an 8-0 run and closed out the quarter leading 17-7. The Conference's highest scoring offense continued to produce in the second quarter as South Carolina outscored Georgia by 16 points to head into the break up 42-16.

The second half looked more of the same with Georgia unable to chip away at its deficit. The Lady Bulldogs outscored the Gamecocks in the final quarter 21-16.

Georgia's second round win over the Auburn Tigers gave Taylor her first career SEC Tourney win as a head coach. She took the helm of the Lady Bulldog basketball program before the 2015-16 season and owns a 37-25 record, including a 2016 NCAA Tournament appearance.
