Georgia Tech's Tyaunna Marshall Named First Team All-ACC

March 4, 2013

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech junior Tyaunna Marshall was selected to the All-ACC First Team, conference commissioner John Swofford announced Monday. Marshall was selected to the first team by both the league’s coaches and the ACC’s Blue Ribbon Panel, which consists of media and school representatives.

She is the first Yellow Jacket to be named All-ACC First Team since Sonja Mallory was selected to the team in 2003. Marshall is just the fourth Jacket to earn All-ACC First Team accolades. As a freshman in 2011, Marshall was named to the All-ACC Third Team and ACC All-Freshman Team. Last season, she was selected to the All-ACC Second Team.

“Ty Marshall is one of the top five players in the ACC,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “She is very deserving of this recognition by the ACC. I am excited for Ty to be selected to the First Team All-ACC and look forward to the future of Georgia Tech women’s basketball with Ty as our leader.”

Marshall finished the regular season ranked second in the ACC in scoring with 17.9 points per game, sixth in rebounding with 8.3 rebounds per game and fourth in steals with 2.5 steals per game. She was the only player in the conference to rank in the top 10 in all three statistical categories.

Marshall’s 37-point outburst in a comeback win over Miami on Feb. 24 was the highest point total in a game by an ACC player this year. The Upper Marlboro, Md., native finished the regular season with eight double-doubles, nine games with at least 20 points and scored in double digits in 27 of 29 games. Marshall was selected as ACC Player of the Week three times, which ties Maryland’s Alyssa Thomas for the most this season.

In nine games against ranked opponents this year, Marshall averaged 18.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.4 steals. She has climbed from outside Tech’s all-time top 25 scorers to eighth with 1,498 career points. Her 520 points this season are the second most by a Yellow Jacket junior.

Tech will face the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in the first round of the 2013 ACC Tournament on Thursday, March 7, at the Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum. The contest will tip-off at 6 p.m. and be aired on the ACC’s Regional Sports Networks. The winner will face second-seeded Maryland at 6 p.m. Friday, March 8, on the ACC’s Regional Sports Networks.
