ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team (5-1) will host South Carolina Upstate (3-5) on Thursday, Dec. 6. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.
Richard Musterer and Kurt Hoyt will call all the action on WREK radio (91.1 FM/www.wrek.org), Georgia Tech women’s basketball’s flagship station.
The Yellow Jackets will meet USC Upstate in the first official meeting between the two schools. Last season, Tech defeated the Spartans 90-46 in an exhibition game in Atlanta. Six Jackets scored in double figures against the former Division II program and newest member of the Atlantic Sun Conference. Tech is 42-18 all-time against A-Sun opponents.
“Upstate has played a very competitive schedule and we expect a battle,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “However, we look forward to being back home on Thursday night.”
Tech dropped its first game of the season, 71-64, to in-state rival Georgia last Sunday for its first defeat of the season. The Spartans are coming off a road win against the College of Charleston on Monday.
“I am very proud of how our players have responded to the game against Georgia,” Joseph said. `We have taken that experience and have become a better basketball team. Our confidence is very high because we believe we lost a game we should have won. These kids have refocused and understand the importance of the next three games.”
