Recap |  Box Score

Another Awesome Aussie Outing:
What didn’t Brigitte Ardossi do? The 6-2 senior forward from Melbourne, Australia had a career night of a double-double: 29 points, eclipsing her career high of 24 (Dec. 28 vs. Hampton) and 11 rebounds, tying her career-best (Dec. 22 at Georgia State). It was her third double-double of the season and fourth of her career. Ardossi shot 10-of-15 from the floor, 9-for-12 from the line.

She had 2 assists, a block, a steal and just 1 turnover in 35 minutes. Ardossi scored Tech’s first two baskets on feeds from Sasha Goodlett, then returned the favor on an assist to Goodlett as the Jackets jumped out to a 10-2 lead. Ardossi scored Tech’s last two baskets of the first half for a 36-31 halftime lead. When Wake drew within 43-39, she scored six straight points as Tech opened up a 51-40 advantage. When Wake drew within 61-55 with six minutes left, Ardossi hit two free throws, then a 3-point play. She was 4-for-4 from the line in the last two minutes, scoring Tech’s final two points.

About the only thing Ardossi didn’t do was make a 3-pointer __ but then, she didn’t try one.

Montgomery’s in Good 3’s Company:
Very good company, actually, after the junior tied her career high with five 3-point baskets. After missing her first shot from beyond the arc, Montgomery made her next four. The last three came in succession to give Tech a 32-18 lead. The fifth, midway through the second half, put Tech up 58-47 and matched her five 3-balls at Maryland on Feb. 19 last year.

Montgomery, who was 5-for-9 on 3-pointers, is all alone in fifth place on Tech’s 3-point career list with 140.

By the Numbers:
This is Tech’s second 2-1 start in ACC play under MaChelle Joseph. The Jackets were also 2-1 in 2007, winning their conference opener 63-57 at Clemson before losing 83-51 at Duke. A 52-37 home win over Miami jump-started Tech toward a 21-12 finish, including a 55-54 win over DePaul in the first round of the NCAA Tournament…One more Ardossi accomplishment: She and backup Tiffany Blackmon now are the winningest senior class in Tech women’s basketball history. This was their 80th victory.
