DURHAM, N.C. (Feb. 11) – Duke’s Georgia Schweitzer and Krista Gingrich each scored a game-high 21 points to propel the 14th-ranked Blue Devils to an 83-51 Atlantic Coast Conference women’s basketball victory over Georgia Tech Friday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Schweitzer and Gingrich hit a combined eight three-pointers for the Blue Devils (19-4 overall, 8-3 ACC), who downed the Yellow Jackets (12-10 overall, 5-7 ACC) for the 13th-straight time, the longest win streak by either school in the series.

Schweitzer sparked Duke to a 20-2 run early in the second half after Tech had trimmed a seven-point halftime deficit to four with 19:02 remaining.

After the Jackets cut Duke’s lead to 35-31, Schweitzer scored seven straight points on a jumper, a pair of free throws and three-pointer to jumpstart the Blue Devil run. Schweitzer scored 12 of the Blue Devils’ 20 points in the spurt and capped the run on a three-point play to put Duke up 55-33 with 11:59 to play.

Senior Danielle Donehew led the Yellow Jackets with a team-high 15 points, and junior Regina Tate had a game-high 13 rebounds.

Georgia Tech returns to action Sunday taking on North Carolina at 1 p.m. at Carmichael Auditorium in Chapel Hill, N.C.
