Senior Tia Faleru has extended her double-figure scoring streak to eight straight games with 19 points against the Crimson Tide.
Coach Matt Insell’s squad picked up its third SEC win over the weekend, which is the most since the 2009-10 season when the Rebels went 7-5 against conference foes.
Georgia comes into town with a 3-1 conference mark and 15-2 overall record after defeating Auburn 57-52 on the road. The Bulldogs opened the season on a 12-game win streak before losing back-to-back against Seton Hall and Mississippi State.
