PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Kahleah Copper and Betnijah Laney each scored 18 points to help Rutgers upset No. 16 Georgia 61-58 on Saturday.

Rutgers (9-2) led by four at the half and the Scarlet Knights couldn't build on that in the second half. Georgia took its first lead of the game, 46-45, on a three-point play by Tiaria Griffin with 7:25 left.

The Scarlet Knights answered with six straight points to make it 51-46 with 5 minutes left.

Rutgers led 59-52 with 21 seconds left before Shacobia Barbee hit a 3-pointer to make it a four-point game. After a missed free throw by Syessence Davis, Barbee swished another 3 from the top of the key to make it 59-58 with 7 seconds left.

Tyler Scaife hit two free throws with 5.9 left and Khaalidah Miller's 3-pointer from 35-feet at the buzzer bounced off the front rim.

Barbee finished with 18 points - 17 of them in the second half - to lead Georgia (11-1).
