Georgia Tech Women’s Hoops: Duke Smashes Lady Jackets 64-47

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The No.3 Duke Lady Blue Devils showed why they are one of the teams that will threaten for a Final Four appearance and possible National Championship. Elizabeth Williams scored 18 points and Tricia Liston added 16 to help lead Duke to a 64-47 win over Georgia Tech in McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta.

Duke’s defense was stifling, as they held the Lady Jackets to 26% shooting from the field. Tyaunna Marshall was a bright spot for the Lady Yellow Jackets playing all 40 minutes and logging a double-double with 18 points and 16 rebounds. Other than Marshall’s effort it was rough on the Georgia Tech ladies. Roddreka Rodgers and Kaela Davis were non-factors in this game. They were a combined 3 of 17 for nine point in the game.

This was a tough test for Georgia Tech, but it is nothing to hang their heads down too long about. The Georgia Tech women are 10-4 on the season. They simply need to shake off this loss and get back on track against the 8-7 Clemson Tigers on Wednesday. If the Georgia Tech ladies can just maintain their ship and get the wins they are supposed to get and maybe a couple that they are not, this could very well be a NCAA Tournament team. Having a short memory and getting this first conference win against Clemson will go a long way for them.
