Women’s Basketball Travels to No. 22 Florida State Friday

GEORGIA TECH (9-3, 0-0 ACC) at No. 22/22 FLORIDA STATE (9-3, 0-0 ACC)

Coming off a commanding 81-50 win over USC Upstate to close out non-conference play before the holiday break, Georgia Tech women’s basketball returns to the hardwood this week to open Atlantic Coast Conference play at No. 22 Florida State on Friday. The Yellow Jackets distributed their offense against USC Upstate on Dec. 20 with four finishing in double-figures to move their win streak to four-straight games. Rusne Augustinaite led the way with 14 points, while Tonie Morgan added 13 points and eight rebounds to just miss a double-double.

Florida State also brings a 9-3 record into conference play, having last defeated Alabama State on Dec. 20 by a 110-45 margin. Sophomore Ti’Niya Latson leads the Seminoles offensively on the year, averaging 19.2 points per game. Makayla Timpson leads FSU in rebounding, securing 9.0 rebounds per game, while also contributing 12.3 points. Florida State was picked to finish fifth in the ACC Preseason Predictions.

Georgia Tech and Florida State are meeting for the 56th time in program history on Friday, with FSU narrowly leading the series, 30-25. The Seminoles have won the last three meetings, including the last two in Tallahassee, after snapping a five-game win streak held by the Jackets. Tech was last victorious against FSU on Jan. 13, 2022 in Atlanta, and last won on the road on Feb. 18, 2021.
