Women’s Basketball Meets Kennesaw State Sunday

GEORGIA TECH (3-0) vs. KENNESAW STATE (1-2)

Coming off an exciting win at Rice on Thursday, Georgia Tech women’s basketball returns home on Sunday to host in-state foe Kennesaw State. The Yellow Jackets improved to 3-0 with the win in Houston and look to keep its record at home unblemished heading into Thanksgiving week.

Georgia Tech trailed by as many as 17 points in the third quarter against Rice, but staged a furious comeback to take away a 78-75 victory over the Owls. Five Yellow Jackets finished with double-figure scoring totals, led by Kayla Blackshear’s 21 points. Freshman D’Asia Thomas-Harris, who hails from just outside Houston, recorded the first double-double of the season with 12 points and 13 rebounds.

Kennesaw State meets its second-straight in-state foe on Sunday, having just faced Georgia State earlier this week. The Owls have bookended a pair of losses with a win against Life to create a 1-2 record. Keyarah Berry leads Kennesaw State offensively, averaging 14.3 points per game, while several Owls average just over 4.0 rebounds per game.

Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State are meeting for the 16th time in program history on the hardwood on Sunday. The Yellow Jackets lead the all-time series, 15-0, and are 11-0 when competing at home. Last season, the teams met in McCamish Pavilion with Tech capturing a 65-39 victory. Kara Dunn and Kayla Blackshear both posted double-figures last season with 13 and 11 points, respectively.

 

 

Competitive Drive Initiative Turn 2

Looking to build on the success of last year’s Competitive Drive Initiative, Georgia Tech, the Georgia Tech Foundation and Georgia Tech athletics are partnering once again to launch Competitive Drive Initiative Turn 2. CDI Turn 2 has a goal of raising $2.5 million in new gifts to the Alexander-Tharpe Fund’s Athletic Scholarship Fund by Dec. 31, and Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Foundation will match eligible gifts to accelerate the impact for Tech athletics. Like last year, not only will gifts to CDI Turn 2 be matched, but so will the contributor’s benefits in the way of A-T Fund giving levels and priority points.
