ATLANTA (AP)–Brigitte Ardossi had a career-high 29 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 21 Georgia Tech to a 72-66 victory over Wake Forest on Thursday night.
Alex Montgomery had 15 points on five 3-pointers and added five assists for the Yellow Jackets (15-3 overall, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who improved to 8-0 at home.
Ardossi shot 10 for 15 from the floor and 9 for 12 at the foul line. The 6-foot-2 senior from Australia came in averaging team highs of 13.5 points and 6.8 rebounds.
Courtney Morris and Asia Williams had 14 points each to lead Wake Forest (10-7, 1-2). Brittany Waters, the Demon Deacons’ leading scorer at 15.6 points per game, fouled out with 9:50 remaining after getting only five points.
Wake Forest never led, but cut a 14-point deficit to one with two baskets to begin the second half before Georgia Tech regained control. Ardossi scored seven points to lead a 15-5 run and the Demon Deacons couldn’t get closer than six the rest of the way.
Georgia Tech jumped to a 17-5 lead, with Ardossi and Sasha Goodlett each getting six points inside. Then Montgomery made four consecutive 3-pointers after an early miss.
The Yellow Jackets led 32-18 after Montgomery’s fourth 3, but Wake Forest scored nine straight points and pulled to 36-31 at halftime.
