ATLANTA – Georgia Tech freshman Tyaunna Marshall was named Third Team Freshman All-American today by Full Court Press, a magazine dedicated to covering women’s basketball.
Marshall was the second leading scorer for the Yellow Jackets this season, averaging 13.6 points per game. The Upper Marlboro, Md., native added 4.2 rebounds an outing, along with nearly two assists a contest and 1.7 steals per game.
“Ty made a significant impact on our team from the beginning of the season,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “She played big in big games all year. Ty was not only one of the best freshmen in the ACC, but one of the best in the country and is very deserving of this honor.”
Marshall started in 30 of 35 games this year for the Yellow Jackets and was named Third Team All-ACC, was an All-ACC Freshman Team selection and earned ACC All-Tournament Second Team accolades. She led Tech in scoring in 16 games and was named ACC Rookie of the Week five times.
Marshall finished her first year on The Flats with 475 points, the third highest total by a Yellow Jacket in their rookie campaign. She posted the highest scoring game by a Tech freshman in her first collegiate game when she tossed in 18 points in the season-opener against Georgia State. She was able to score consistently for the Yellow Jackets and scored at least 20 points six times this year, including three times against Top 25 teams.
