With only three home games left of the regular season, Georgia Tech women’s basketball returns to action on Sunday, welcoming Miami for its annual Play4Kay Pink Game. The Yellow Jackets look to get back to winning ways, coming off a heartbreaking three-point loss at No. 23 Syracuse on Thursday, 62-59. Kara Dunn led the way offensively, chipping in 17 points to lead a trio of Jackets in double-figures. Tech led by as many as eight points in the game, but couldn’t hold on down the stretch.

Miami comes into the contest winners of three of its last five, most recently topping Clemson in overtime at home, 75-72. The Hurricanes boast a 13-1 record at home, including a 4-1 ACC mark, but are 2-5 on the road, 1-5 against league opponents – their only win away from home was against Wake Forest on Feb. 1. Shayeann Day-Wilson leads Miami offensively, averaging 11.5 points per game. Lazaria Spearman paces the team on the glass, pulling down 5.9 rebounds per game on average.

On a four-game win streak against Tech, Miami holds the lead in the all-time series, 21-17. The Jackets were last victorious against the Hurricanes completing the sweep in 2021. Miami has taken the last two meetings in McCamish Pavilion despite the Jackets leading the series, 8-6, when competing at home.
