ATLANTA — Following an 80-58 win in its opening exhibition game of the year last Friday night, the Georgia Tech women’s basketball team will conclude its preseason preparations on Saturday afternoon in an exhibition game with Southeast Pro-Am at 2:00 p.m. at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.
The Yellow Jackets were able to put all of their preseason workouts to good use against the University of the Virgin Islands All-Stars on November 2, and found a good deal of success in claiming the 22-point victory. Tech placed four players in double figures in scoring, led by senior Milli Martinez, whose 17 points and nine rebounds were both game highs. Fellow back court performer Nina B?rlin also had a good performance open to the year as she scored 10 points, eight of which came in a 14-4 Jacket run to open the game, and handed out eight assists in the contest.
Tech also welcomed back the services of senior forward Regina Tate, who missed all of last season with a leg injury. Tate made her presence felt as she netted 12 points and grabbed six rebounds in the game. Sophomore newcomer Megan Isom, who transferred from Tennessee Tech prior to last season, nailed three three-point baskets en route a 14-point outing in her first appearance as a Yellow Jacket.
Following the match-up with SE Pro-Am, the Jackets will begin preparations for their season-opening contest against Kansas State on November 16 at 5:30 p.m. at Alexander Memorial Coliseum. The game will mark the first time that the Wildcats and Yellow Jackets have faced one another and will be the first game of the 2001-02 season for both teams. Kansas State welcomes back four starters and seven letterwinners from a year ago, including Big 12 Freshman of the Year Nicole Ohlde.
