Georgia's Stephanie Paul beats Vanderbilt at the buzzer

  Freshman Stephanie Paul hit a jumper from the paint at the buzzer to defeat Vanderbilt.

With Southeastern Conference standing in the balance, Georgia and Vanderbilt fought tooth and nail on Sunday afternoon. 

The Commodores, hoping to end a four-game slide, held a double-digit lead for most of the second quarter, but the Lady Bulldogs battled back to within one by halftime. 

The SEC rivals traded equal blows throughout the second half until, tied at 68, UGA freshman Stephanie Paul came off the bench.

With less than three seconds on the clock, Shanea Armbrister passed to Paul inside, and the freshman hit the jumper perfectly.

After review, it was determined the shot fell with .3 seconds left on the clock, but, as former Georgia coach Andy Landers said on the SEC Network broadcast, that was barely enough time to get the ball in bounds.

The Lady Dogs improved to 2-1 in SEC play, holding steady just below the titans of the conference. Vandy fell to 0-3, suffering their fifth consecutive loss.
