BLACKSBURG, Va.. (AP) Sasha Goodlett’s 18 points helped give the 17th-ranked Georgia Tech women a 76-66 victory over Virginia Tech Thursday night.

The win clinched a first-round bye for the Yellow Jackets (20-7, 11-4) in next week’s Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and extended their school record for ACC wins in a season to 11.

Goodlett, the Jackets’ center and leading scorer, hit 7 of 12 shots. Metra Walthour, who scored 14 points (going 7 for 7 at the foul line) helped Goodlett give Georgia Tech a 40-24 halftime lead. Nineteen of the Jackets’ 40 first-half points came from the bench.

Georgia Tech led 46-28 early in the second half for its largest lead. Virginia Tech (7-21, 3-12) rallied behind Aerial Wilson, who led the Hokies with 21 points, and cut the Jackets’ lead to 55-48. But Georgia Tech made eight of 10 foul shots in the last two minutes to seal it.
