ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team (18-5, 5-4 ACC) will try and end its two-game losing streak when it faces Savannah State (12-12) Tuesday evening at Alexander Memorial Coliseum. Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m.
Fans can listen to Richard Musterer and Kurt Hoyt call all the action on WREK Radio (91.1 FM/www.wrek.org), Georgia Tech women’s basketball’s flagship station.
“Getting a chance to play two games in a little over 48 hours will be great for us as we look ahead to our final two Atlantic Coast Conference games,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “Having to end ACC play with Virginia Tech and then travel to Virginia will be real challenge. Tomorrow night’s game will help prepare us for that.”
The Yellow Jackets will meet the Tigers for the first time in the history of the program. Tech is 21-3 all-time against Independent teams, including a 75-46 win over Longwood on Feb. 25, 2007.
Tech returns to the court after dropping a 75-61 decision to No. 3/3 North Carolina on Sunday. The Jackets were behind by only four points at the half but were unable to steer the momentum in their favor during the second half. Over 3,000 fans came out to the AMC to “Think Pink” with the Jackets, who wore pink uniforms to show their support for the fight against breast cancer.
The Jackets are led by Janie Mitchell, who is ranked second in the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring with 17.5 points per game. Alex Montgomery is one of only four players and the only freshman in the ACC with 40 steals and 20 blocks on the season.
After tomorrow’s game, Tech will travel north to Boston College next Monday, Feb. 18. Tip-off for the Eagles’ “Think Pink” night is scheduled for 7 p.m. and will be televised live on the ACC Regional Sports Networks (Fox Sports South in Atlanta).
