The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team didn’t quite have as much luck as the men at Stegeman Coliseum, as the Lady Jackets dropped their second straight game of the season to the No. 23 Georgia Lady Bulldogs, 63-56. Tech has still never won a game at Stegeman in the program’s history.
Tech Freshman sensation Kaela Davis put up 13 points (about half of her season average thus far), but it wasn’t near enough to get the Yellow Jackets past the undefeated Bulldogs, who have now upped their record against Tech to 32-4 all-time.
Georgia never trailed in this game, although Tech was able tie the game twice and to get within three points with 4:27 remaining, but couldn’t push past their in-state rivals. Committing 27 turnovers didn’t help matter for the Jackets, who were out of sync on the court for much of the night.
This has been a tough stretch for the Lady Jackets, facing two top-25 SEC teams in a row this early in the season, and Tech hung in there in both games, despite the losses. It just has to be looked at as character building, and a good way to see exactly what this team can do. Staying within 11 points of No.4 Tennessee and seven points of No.23 Georgia is nothing to hang your head about.
Next up the Jackets will be traveling to take on the Southern Utah Thunderbirds on Nov. 29th.
