TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)  The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team fell short at No. 19 Florida State 75-69 on Sunday.

“I thought we came out and battled in a tough environment on the road,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “I felt like our kids really competed and played hard.” 

Shakayla Thomas had career highs of 32 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Seminoles. Adut Bulgak added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Seminoles (12-4, 2-1 ACC), who extended their home winning streak to 27.

Ciani Cryor scored 18 points and Aaliyah Whiteside 17 for the Yellow Jackets (10-7, 0-4).

The Seminoles were shooting 50 percent on 3-pointers at home but dipped to 21 percent (4 of 19) Sunday. They also had 29 turnovers but they ruled the boards, 56-21.

The Seminoles led by 17 before a 19-1 Georgia Tech run cut it to one, 37-36, at halftime. FSU rebuilt its lead to 10 but a 3-pointer by Antonia Peresson shaved it to three, 72-69, with 3:14 left. However, the Yellow Jackets missed four shots and had two turnovers after that while Thomas added a final free throw and basket.

Next up the Yellow Jackets host North Carolina on Thursday at 7 p.m. on ESPN3.
