KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jordan Reynolds scored 15 points and No. 5 Tennessee came from behind in the second half for a 59-51 victory Sunday over No. 22 Georgia, which lost leading scorer Shacobia Barbee to an injury.
    
Barbee got hurt with less than three minutes left in the first half, was helped off the court and walked to the locker room on crutches just before halftime. She didn't return in the second half.
    
Tennessee (17-3, 7-0 SEC) won despite failing to score in the first eight-plus minutes of the second half, which allowed Georgia to take a 35-30 lead. Georgia (17-4, 5-3) had a scoring drought of its own that lasted nearly seven minutes later in the game.
    
Isabelle Harrison put Tennessee ahead for good at 47-45 by converting a three-point play with 5:51 remaining.
    
Tennessee won by going 20 of 21 from the free-throw line, while Georgia was 3 of 7.
