ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Erika Ford scored 13 points and Khaalidah Miller 12 as No. 24 Georgia held off Ohio State 53-49 on Sunday in a meeting of unbeaten NCAA Tournament regulars.

Miller hit three of her team's five 3-pointers, including one at 2:19 that extended Georgia lead to 51-45. Ohio State's Raven Ferguson scored a putback after an offensive rebound and Ameryst Alston made two free throws in the final minutes, but the Buckeyes could not get closer than four.

Alston scored a game-high 22 points for the Buckeyes (3-1), including six points in the final 6:45. She and Darryce Moore each scored early as Ohio State led 7-1, and were up 33-29 at the half on an Alston 3-pointer.

Krista Donald and Miller combined for seven points in one-minute flurry to put the Lady Bulldogs up for good at 40-33 with 16:12 to play. Donald finished with 10 points and 16 rebounds.
