BATON ROUGE - Theresa Plaisance scored 13 points, grabbed nine rebounds and blocked three shots, and LSU snapped a snapped a two-game skid with a 62-54 upset of No. 9 Georgia on Sunday.

Plaisance, whose late-game failure at the foul line marred an otherwise dominant 20-point outing in a last-second loss to Tennessee on Thursday, came through in the clutch this time. She converted a strong inside move with 1:33 left to give the Lady Tigers (14-10, 5-6 Southeastern Conference) a 55-52 lead, and her defensive rebound inside the final minute forced the Lady Bulldogs (20-4, 8-3) to start fouling.

Jean Kenney closed an 11-point performance with six free throws in the final 1:04 to help seal the victory.

LSU's Danielle Ballard grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds, including eight on the offensive end to keep possessions alive.

Jasmine Hassell led Georgia with 18 points and tied a career high with 12 rebounds.
