Georgia Tech Game Notes

Jan. 27, 2010

Recap |  Box Score

A Career-Career Double-Double:
“Unbelievable game by Ardossi,” said Miami coach Katie Meier. “Her shot chart was all over the court.” How unbelievable was Brigitte Ardossi? The 6-2 senior from Australia grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds and tied her career-high with 29 points.

“I don’t think it’s a matter of jumping high,” Ardossi said of rebounding. “It’s a matter of positioning.” She shattered her previous career best of 11 rebounds in this, her fourth double-figure rebounding game of the season. And Ardossi, who’s now scored in double figures in 20 of 22 games this season, wasn’t alone.

“Twenty-three offensive rebounds, fourteen by their bigs,” Meier said. “That really sticks out.” While Ardossi took 6 offensive boards, 6-5 center Sasha Goodlett grabbed 8 – as many as Miami’s team total.

Goodlett also had 5 defensive boards for a total of 13. Of guard Deja Foster’s 11 rebounds, 6 were offensive, giving Tech a 23-8 advantage on the offensive boards. The Jackets outscored Miami 23-6 on second-chance points.

A Double-Double in Triplicate:
“I don’t think I’ve ever had three players with double-doubles in the same game,” said Jackets coach MaChelle Joseph after Goodlett (14 points, 13 rebounds) and Foster (11, 11) also recorded double-doubles.

“And Deja was just one assist away from a triple-double,” Joseph said of Foster, who finished with 9 assists.

The last time Tech had three players with double-doubles in a game? Feb. 23, 2002 against Morris Brown, when Sonja Mallory (33 points, 11 rebounds), Milli Martinez (12, 10) and Regina Tate (12, 13) turned the trick.

Half `n’ Half with Alex:
It was a nightmarish first half for Alex Montgomery. The ACC’s No. 3 3-point shooter was 0-for-8 from behind the arc, 0-for-10 overall by halftime. But the junior opened the second half with her first 3-ball, and after dribbling behind her back and splitting two defenders for a layup, stuck a long 3-pointer…and then another one to tie it at 37-all.

Montgomery, making her second straight start, went 4-for-7 on 3’s in the second half and finished with 17 points. She gave the Jackets a terrible scare, crumbling to the floor with 7:43 left in regulation, screaming and holding her surgically-repaired right leg. A trainer removed the brace on the knee, and after several minutes, Montgomery finally got up and jogged off the floor – then returned to play less than two minutes later. It was only a cramp.
