With the loss Ole Miss fell to 9-18 overall (2-12 SEC) while No. 12 Georgia improved to 23-4 overall (11-3 SEC).

"From that point on we played a 20-20 tie throughout the rest of the first half. In the second, we spotted them nine in a row and we dug ourselves a bigger hole and had to continue to battle throughout the rest of the game."
Georgia got out to a quick 13-0 start but the Rebels used an 8-2 run from that point to cut the Lady Bulldogs' lead to 15-8 with 12:01 to play in first half.
