NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jasmine Lister scored 24 points and the Vanderbilt defense smothered No. 19 Georgia's top scorers to earn a 66-58 win in the Southeastern Conference opener Thursday night.

Christina Foggie added 11 points for the Commodores (12-2), who won their ninth straight. Lister (1,414) and Foggie (1,412) went past the 1,400 point milestone.

Georgia (12-2) was led by Khaalidah Miller with 16 and Krista Donald, Erika Ford had 12 each. However, Tiaria Griffin and Shacobla Barbee, who combine for 26.7 points, were held to 5 points each.

Lister's layup with 6:21 left put Vanderbilt up for good at 50-49 and she followed with a 3-pointer. Miller countered with a 3 for the Bulldogs but a Foggie's 3 at 5:07 started a 7-0 surge for a 60-52 lead with 3:45 remaining.

Georgia, which had 24 turnovers, got within four with 30 seconds left but Vanderbilt made 4 of 6 free throws down the stretch.
