Georgia Tech women's hoops: Davis, Marshall named to All-ACC Team

If you’ve watched even a little of the Georgia Tech women’s basketball team this season, you’ll know that senior Tyaunna Marshall and freshman Kaela Davis have led the way to a successful year for the Lady Jackets. Their hard work has paid off, with both being named to the 2014 All-ACC Team by the ACC’s Blue Ribbon Panel.

The panel, which consists of media and school representatives, conference commissioner John Swofford, announced the honors on Monday.

This is Marshall’s second consecutive year of being named First Feam All-ACC, while the freshman Davis was named to the second team.

Per the Georgia Tech Athletic Department, Marshall is the first Yellow Jacket to be named to the All-ACC First Team twice in her career. She honored as a junior on the All-ACC First Team and is just the fourth Jacket to earn All-ACC First Team honors.

Davis, who has had an incredible freshman season, has been named to both the All-ACC Second Team and All-Freshman Team. She leads all ACC rookies with her 18.4 ppg and leads the Jackets with 2.6 made 3-pointers a game. Davis was also named the ACC Rookie of the week four times this season, a conference-high among all of the rookies.

The Yellow Jackets are getting ready for the ACC tournament, which will be followed most certainly by a bid for the NCAA Women’s Championship Tournament. If anyone can lead the Lady Jackets to victories in both tourneys, it’s Marshall and Davis.
