Georgia suffers overtime heartbreak

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

The Georgia Bulldogs' dream run to the NCAA Women's Final Four came crashing down in overtime Monday night.

Georgia fell to Cal, 65-62, in the final of the Spokane, Wash. regional.

After leading the vast majority of the game, Georgia surrendered the lead when Talia Caldwell tied it for Cal at 50 with 2:56 to play in regulation. The Golden Bears hit two free throws and led 52-50 with 13 seconds left when Anne Armstrong tied the game on a layup. Cal's last-second heave at the buzzer didn't fall, and the game went to overtime.

Cal started overtime on a 9-3 run to lead 61-55 with 1:05 to play. Shacobla Barbee hit two free throws, then a layup after a Cal basket to make it 63-59 with 15 seconds left. After Reshanda Gray split a pair of Bear free throws, a three-pointer from Armstrong made it 64-62 with eight seconds remaining, but that was as close as Georgia would get.

Barbee led the Lady Bulldogs with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Armstrong added 12 and Jasmine James 11.

Georgia finishes the year 28-7 overall.
