ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Jasmine James hit a 3-pointer with 15 seconds

remaining in overtime to give No. 8 Georgia a school-record 15-0

start with a 61-60 win over Kentucky on Thursday night.

Ashley Houts scored a career-high 27 points for the Bulldogs,

(2-0 Southeastern Conference) who appeared to have the game won at

the end of regulation after Meredith Mitchell blocked Amani

Franklin's shot with 4 seconds to play.

Mitchell chased down the block and was fouled with 2.8 seconds

left. She made the second free throw, but fouled Amber Smith on the

inbound play. Smith hit both shots to tie it at 56 and force

overtime.

Kentucky (12-2, 0-1 SEC) went up 60-56 in overtime on a layup by

Victoria Dunlap and two free throws by Franklin. The Wildcats threw

the ball out of bounds trying to protect a 60-58 lead, setting up

James' shot.

Smith led Kentucky with 15 points. Dunlap added 12.
