Team

– Four days after allowing Duke to shoot 50 per cent from the field, Georgia Tech clamped down defensively. The Jackets held Miami to 26.4 per cent shooting (14-for-53) for the night. In the first half, the Canes were just 3-for-20 (20.7 per cent) from inside the 3-point line, allowing Tech to take a 35-17 halftime lead.

– Miami’s 42 points was the lowest total by an ACC opponent since Tech’s 52-37 home victory over the Canes on Jan. 15, 2007.

– For the first time since early in her sophomore year, senior guard Jacqua Williams didn’t start. But her consecutive games steal streak lives _ barely. The ACC leader in steals played just four minutes in the first half, picking up two quick fouls after entering with 17:19 left in the half.

– Williams finally made her first and only steal of the night early in the second half to extend her steals streak to 59 games in a row. Her 74th steal of the season was also the 335th of Williams’ career, breaking a tie with ex-North Carolina star Marion Jones for seventh place on the all-time ACC list.

– When Brigitte Ardossi completed a 3-point play early in the first half, it was her 16th consecutive free throw without a miss. The 6-foot-2 junior from Australia hasn’t missed from the line since the Winthrop game on Dec. 18, and leads Tech in foul shooting at 83.3 per cent (45-for-54).

– Making her fourth start of the season, sophomore guard Deja Foster set a career high in assists _ in the first half. Five of her six assists, and all 12 of Foster’s points, came before the break.

Sasha Goodlett, the 6-foot-5 freshman center, converted a 3-point play midway in the second half to give Tech a 58-34 lead. That gave Goodlett 12 points _ one shy of her career high but enough for her third game in double-figures.
