DULUTH, Ga. (AP) - Khaalidah Miller scored 12 points, Krista Donald and Erika Ford each added 10 points as ninth-seeded Georgia beat No. 8 seed Vanderbilt 53-43 in the second round of the Southeastern Conference tournament on Thursday.

The ninth-seeded Lady Bulldogs (20-10) will play No. 5 South Carolina, the tournament's top seed, on Friday. Georgia has won four of six.

Christina Foggie, the SEC's leading scorer this season, finished with 16 points and Kylee Smith had 10 for Vanderbilt (18-12).

The Commodores, who have lost nine of 11, failed to win an SEC tournament game for the first time in 15 years.

Georgia had lost nine of 12 to Vanderbilt, but the Lady Bulldogs took control of the game with a 16-0 run late in the first half to take a 15-point lead on Halle Washington's putback.
