Georgia Tech women’s basketball looks to avenge a loss to Florida State earlier this season when it welcomes the Seminoles for the second meeting of the home-and-home this Sunday. The Yellow Jackets, who are in the midst of a three-game stretch against ranked opponents, are coming off a tough loss at No. 19 Virginia Tech. Tech cut it to seven points in the second quarter, but the Hokies pulled away in the second half. Tonie Morgan recorded a career-high 26 points in the game.

Florida State comes into the contest looking to snap a three-game skid, most recently falling at Duke, 88-46. The Seminoles are 1-3 when playing conference games on the road, having picked up its only road win at Clemson, 78-72, on Jan. 7. Ta’Niya Latson leads FSU offensively, averaging 20.2 points per game, and ranks fourth in the ACC in scoring. Makayla Timpson leads the Seminoles on the glass, securing 9.3 rebounds, while also contributing 13.5 points per game.

Georgia Tech opened ACC play this season at then-No. 22 Florida State, dropping a 95-80 decision. The Yellow Jackets will look to snap a four-game skid to the Seminoles on Sunday. FSU leads the all-time series, 31-25, after the first meeting this season. The Jackets held a five-game win streak over the Seminoles prior to the four-game skid. Tech has taken three of the past four meetings in McCamish Pavilion despite FSU winning the last meeting in 2023.
