Duke went down to Georgia and came back with a 72-65 overtime win over the Bulldogs in the women’s ACC/SEC Challenge.

Duke led for a good bit of the game before Georgia pushed back in the third quarter, outscoring the Blue Devils 17-12.

Georgia outscored Duke 12-9 in the fourth quarter to put the game in overtime. The Blue Devils took care of business, winning in OT 17-10.

Ashlon Jackson scored 18 points and passed out five assists. Reigan Richardson scored 15 while Jadyn Donovan chipped in 13. Oluchi Okananwa had 12 points, five boards and two assists.

It was a solid win for the Devils and it helped to ease some of the sting from the Stanford loss - and to apply some of the lessons there too.

Next for Duke is another SEC opponent, Dawn Staley’s South Carolina and freshman sensation MiLaysia Fulwiley. So far, she is playing like an absolute prodigy. This game is in Cameron and if you can go, you should.
