Coaches Name Marshall to All-ACC First Team, Davis to Second Team

March 10, 2014

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech senior Tyaunna Marshall has been named to the All-ACC First Team and All-ACC Defensive Team and freshman Kaela Davis has been named to the All-ACC Second Team and All- Freshman Team by the ACC’s head coaches, conference commissioner John Swofford announced Monday.

“Ty Marshall is very deserving of being named First Team All-ACC for the second consecutive year,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “Ty has left her mark on the Georgia Tech women’s basketball program. She will leave our program as arguably the best player to ever play here. Kaela has had an unbelievable freshman year. She is no doubt one of the best freshmen in the country. The impact she has had on this program will be felt for years to come.”

An All-ACC First Team, Second Team, Freshman Team and Defensive Team were voted on by the league’s 15 head coaches. The All-ACC First Team and Freshman Teams mirror that of the Blue Ribbon Panel All-ACC selections, which were announced on March 4. Marshall was also selected to the All-ACC First Team and Davis was selected to both the All-ACC Second Team and All-Freshman Team by the Blue Ribbon Panel.

Marshall is one of three first-team players from last season that were repeat selections this year. She joins Alyssa Thomas of Maryland and Duke’s Elizabeth Williams.

Marshall is the first Yellow Jacket to be named to the All-ACC First Team twice in her career. The 5′ 9″ guard was honored as a junior on the All-ACC First Team and was the first Jacket to be named to the 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.

This is also Marshall’s second consecutive year being named to the All-Defensive Team. She is the fifth Yellow Jacket to be named to the All-ACC Defensive Team. Marshall joins Jacqua Williams (2008, 2009) as the only Jacket to garner All-ACC Defensive Team honors two seasons in a row. Marshall leads the ACC in steals, averaging 2.7 per game and is second in offensive rebounds, averaging 3.8 per game. Marshall is third in the lead in scoring with 19.6 ppg and is eighth in rebounding with 7.6 rpg. This season she became Georgia Tech’s all-time leading scorer and the first Jacket to reach 2,000 career points. Her 2,109 career points have her in 18th on the ACC career total points list.

After a stellar freshman season, Davis has been named to both the All-ACC Second Team and All-Freshman Team. Davis leads all ACC rookies with her 18.6 ppg and leads the Jackets with 2.7 made 3-pointers a game. In her freshman season, Davis has recorded 14 20 point games and led the team in scoring in 15 games.

Davis most recently broke Karen Lounsbury’s (1988-89) freshman single record of 539 points against Virginia in the ACC Tournament. Davis currently has 578 points this season. Davis is just the third freshman to score 500 points in their first season on the Flats. Davis was named the ACC Rookie of the week four times this season. Davis’ four ACC Rookie of the Week awards is a conference-high among all of the rookies. She ranks fifth in the ACC with her 18.6 ppg and has recorded seven double-doubles this season.
