ATHENS, Ga. -- Kelly Miller scored a season-high 28 points and No. 4 Georgia finished the game with a 15-0 run for a 72-59 victory over No. 10 Florida on Thursday night.

The Bulldogs (14-2, 2-0 SEC) won their 12th straight game. Florida (13-2, 2-1) led by 10 in the first half, but Miller scored the first nine points of the second half.

"Great players find a way to win," Florida coach Carol Ross said. "Kelly Miller made great play after great play."

Still, the Bulldogs trailed 59-57 with three minutes left after Sherisha Hills hit a rare three-pointer for Florida, which went 4-for-28 beyond the arc.

Christi Thomas tied the score on the inside and Coco Miller's jumper put Georgia ahead for good with 2:12 to go.

Florida had 20 turnovers and shot a season-low 33.3 percent (22-for-66) from the field, including 4-of-28 three-pointers.
