ATLANTA – Janie Mitchell notched her 15th career double-double as the Georgia Tech women’s basketball team (19-6, 5-5 ACC) defeated visiting Savannah State (12-13), 82-28, Tuesday night at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.
Every Yellow Jacket scored in the game including four players who finished in double figures. Tech grabbed 49 rebounds and forced the Lady Tigers into 30 turnovers as it held Savannah State to the fewest points allowed in school history.
“I was very pleased with our defensive effort tonight and especially our bench,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “We look forward to a couple days off to get mentally and physically prepared for our final four Atlantic Coast Conference games.”
The Jackets opened a 39-16 advantage at the half with a 20-4 run and never looked back. The second half was more of the same as Tech opened with a 14-2 run over the first eight minutes. The Jackets held Savannah State to only 25 percent shooting from the field and finished with 16 steals on the night.
The Lady Tigers were led by Antoinette Williams, who scored 10 points. Patrice Robinson finished with a game-high four blocks.
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).
