THE FLATS – Georgia Tech women’s basketball opens a two-game road swing with a 2 p.m. tilt on Sunday at Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The game will be broadcast on ACC Network Extra.
The Yellow Jackets (14-5, 5-3 ACC) dropped their second-straight contest of the season to North Carolina in overtime last Thursday. Kierra Fletcher tied the game with 11.2 seconds left in regulation, hitting her second career three-pointer, to force the extra period. But UNC outscored the Jackets, 13-6, in overtime to take away the win. Fletcher was one of four Jackets to finish in double-figures against the Tar Heels, and is one of five averaging double-figures on the season.
