ATLANTA –

Chioma Nnamaka scored a game-high 21 points, and Janie Mitchell added 14 points and 12 rebounds as Georgia Tech held off the EA Sports Premier Players, 66-58, in an exhibition game at the Georgia Dome Thursday night.

It was Tech’s only exhibition game in the Yellow Jackets’ pre-season preparations for their season opener Nov. 18 at Alabama-Birmingham.

Stephanie Higgs was the third Tech player in double figures with 10, and she also had four assists for the Yellow Jackets. Megan Harpring scored six points with a game-high five assists.

Nnamaka, a 5-11 sophomore from Uppsala, Sweden, scored 12 of her 21 points in the first half, including a pair of three-point field goals, as Tech opened a 40-31 lead at intermission.

That was the Jackets’ biggest lead in the game. Shanika Freeman, who played collegiately at Jacksonville State, went 4-for-4 in the second half and scored 10 of her team-leading 18 points to help her team chip away and get within two points in three occasions in the final six minutes.

Tech, 11-of-16 from the free throw line in the game, went 6-for-6 down the stretch to hold off their opponent. Mitchell made two to put Tech ahead 60-56 with 4:12 left, and Nnamaka made two for a 62-58 Jackets’ lead with 58 seconds showing on the clock. Mitchell added two more with 36 seconds left for a six-point Tech lead.

Tamia Williams, formerly of Florida, also reached double figures for EA Sports with 10, and former Tech player Fallon Stokes scored eight.
