Brigitte Ardossi played in her 124th consecutive game, a Georgia Tech career record for games played. She shared the old mark of 123 with her ex-teammate Jacqua Williams. The senior from Melbourne, Australia has played in every game since coming to the Flats.
This wasn’t Ardossi’s finest outing, hitting just 2 of 10 shots in the first half. “I think teams are starting to key on Brigitte,” said Tech coach MaChelle Joselph. Yet with 14 points (4-for-16 overall), Ardossi scored in double figures for the 20th straight game, and the 25th time in 27 games this season.
Statistically, the sloppiest game of the season was against Kennesaw State, when Tech and the Owls combined for 51 turnovers (24 by Tech). Tech and Duke nearly matched that with 49 turnovers (27 by the Jackets).
By the Numbers:
When the Jackets led 21-20 at halftime, it was the first time all season Duke trailed at the half in an ACC game.” I was very pleased with our defense in the first half,” said Joseph. “That’s as fine a defensive effort as we can give.”…After scoring just 2 points against FSU (1-for-7 shooting) and failing to grab a single rebound for the only time all season, Deja Foster had a fine night: 15 points on 7-for-14 shooting (including two splendid behind-the-back drives to the hoop), 5 assists and 3 rebounds.
