Georgia Tech women’s basketball takes a break from playing at home to make the short trip to in-state rival Georgia on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets look to extend their two-game winning streak, most recently coming off a commanding 94-70 victory over Georgia State last Sunday. Sophomore guard Kara Dunn set the ACC individual scoring high this season, dropping a career-high 39 points in the win to pick up ACC Player of the Week honors. Dunn led four Jackets in double-figures, while Kayla Blackshear recorded a double-double in the victory behind 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Georgia is also riding a two-game win streak in the midst of a four-game homestand, having defeated Furman and Troy, most recently. The Lady Bulldogs have dropped only two games this season, falling at Belmont and recently against Duke. Georgia is led offensively by three Bulldogs averaging 10 points or more this season with Javyn Nicholson scoring a team-high 15.8 points per game. She also leads on the glass, securing 8.9 rebounds per game on average.
Saturday’s meeting marks the 46th in program history between Georgia Tech and Georgia with the Bulldogs leading the series, 37-8. The Lady Bulldogs took last season’s meeting in Atlanta, 66-52, but Tech has taken the last two meetings in Athens and three of the last five overall.
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 for Competitive Drive Initiative Turn 2. Initially launched on Nov. 7, CDI Turn 2 has reached its initial goal of raising $2.5 million in new gifts to the Alexander-Tharpe Fund’s Athletic Scholarship Fund and has a new goal of raising $3 million in new gifts to the A-T Fund by Dec. 31. Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Foundation will match eligible gifts to accelerate the impact for Tech athletics and, 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.
