ATLANTA — The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team will look to build on the momentum gained from its win over Florida State last week when it travels to face Clemson on Sunday afternoon in a game that will tip off at 2 p.m. at Littlejohn Coliseum. The contest will be televised regionally on Comcast Sports Southeast.
The Yellow Jackets (16-9, 5-8 ACC) put an emphatic stop to their two-game losing skid on Wednesday, by dominating Florida State en route to a 30-point home victory over the Seminoles. The 86-56 margin was the third-largest in a conference game for Tech in school history.
Tech used increased defensive pressure, an outstanding shooting performance and solid rebounding to claim the win over FSU. The Jackets turned 27 Seminole turnovers into 39 points and claimed a 44-36 edge on the boards in the game. In the first half, Tech shot a blistering 57.6 percent (19-for-33) from the floor, finishing at 44.6 percent (29-for-65) for the game.
The Jackets also got some of their best ball movement of the year on offense, recording 17 assists in the game, led by seven helpers from junior guard Alex Stewart. With that effort, Tech ran its record to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the ACC when it has 15 or more assists in a game.
In the game with FSU, Tech was led by four players in double-figure scoring, including a game-high 19 points by junior forward Fallon Stokes, who also led all players with eight rebounds. Junior guard Megan Isom added 18 points on the strength of a 5-for-6 performance from beyond the three-point arc that was part of a team three-point percentage that was an outstanding 64.3 percent. Rookie guard Mallorie Winn came off the bench to net 17 points and Alex Stewart finished with 10 points to go along with her seven assists, six rebounds and five steals.
