ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) Brigitte Ardossi had 18 points and Alex Montgomery added 17 points off the bench to lead No. 25 Georgia Tech to a 70-48 victory over Arizona on Sunday.

Montgomery had 13 of her points in the first half, going 3 for 3 on 3-pointers and 4 for 4 from the foul line. She also had a team-best eight rebounds.

Georgia Tech (9-2) shot 52.8 percent, including 5 for 11 from behind the arc.

Soana Lucet had 10 of Arizona’s first 12 points and finished with 19 for the Wildcats (5-3). Ify Ibekwe had 11 rebounds. Arizona was just 2 of 21 on 3-pointers and shot 35 percent overall.

The Wildcats scored the first six points and took a 17-11 lead. But Montgomery’s 3-pointer put Georgia Tech ahead for good at 24-22, and a 21-5 run put the Yellow Jackets up 41-27 at halftime.

It was the Yellow Jackets’ second victory over a Pac-10 team in five days. They defeated Oregon 87-69 on Wednesday.
