Georgia tied Utah for the most NCAA titles by winning the fourth of five straight championships.
No. 7 Georgia defeated No. 4 Tennessee, 77-71, behind a 20-point, eight-assist night from Saudia Roundtree. The victory was Andy Landers' 400th with the Lady Bulldogs and opened a stretch that included wins over No. 24 Auburn, No. 3 Connecticut, No. 10 Penn State and No. 20 Florida.
In perhaps the biggest win of the Red Lawson era, Georgia opened the 1965 season with a 64-61 victory over 13th-ranked North Carolina. Jimmy Pitts and Lee Martin combined for 37 points and the Bulldogs "held" Tar Heel All-American Billy Cunningham to a mere 22 points and 24 rebounds. Lawson was hoisted upon his players' shoulders after the final buzzer.
Georgia claimed its second NCAA title and first in Athens, holding off No. 1 seed UCLA by five-hundredths of a point.
Karin Lichey became the only gymnast in college history to post four perfect 10s in Georgia's win over Kentucky.
Kim Arnold and Leah Brown both scored a pair of 10s on vault and floor as No. 1 Georgia dominated No. 2 Alabama 197.875-196.600.
Georgia upset 4th-ranked Kentucky 94-90 in overtime. Reserve forward Steve Jones scored the Bulldogs' last four points on a pair of foul shots with 24 seconds left and, with seven ticks remaining, a steal and layup that sent the sold-out crowd into a frenzy.
The Coliseum was christened with an 81-68 victory over archrival Georgia Tech. Perry, Ga., native Lee Martin scored the first varsity basket in the Coliseum's history, 16 days after scoring the final bucket ever at Woodruff Hall. An 86-51 victory by Georgia's freshman team over Tech's freshmen preceded the inaugural game in, technically speaking, the first game in Coliseum history.
