SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Jasmine Hassell scored 16 points, Shacobia Barbee added 13, and fourth-seeded Georgia used a big run midway through the second half to pull away from Montana for a 70-50 win on Saturday in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Jasmine James added 11 points for the Lady Bulldogs (26-6), who will face No. 5 seed Iowa State in their next game on Monday night.

Georgia led 38-36 with 15 minutes remaining before going on a 21-6 run to grab control and earn a bit of redemption after being upset by Marist in the first round a year ago.

Torry Hill led 13th-seeded Montana (24-8) with 11 points. But on a night the Lady Griz needed to hit all their open looks, they shot just 29% and committed 20 turnovers.
