ESPN writer Charlie Creme released his updated bracketology for the 2020 NCAA Women’s Tournament on Monday and has the Yellow Jackets slotted in the middle of the pack.
The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team will take the court on Thursday against North Carolina as they look to get back into the win column after a loss to Boston College on Sunday. The Jackets are sitting at 14-4 overall this season and 5-2 in conference play, setting them up nicely for a probable spot in the NCAA Tournament.
On Monday, ESPN.com writer Charlie Creme, released his updated bracketology for the 2020 NCAA Women’s Tournament. It won’t take long for Tech fans to find the Yellow Jackets as Creme as has them slotted in at the No.8 spot in Greenville regional with their first round game taking place in Columbia, South Carolina. The Jackets according to Creme’s bracketology would be taking on the No.9 seed Texas Longhorns who are currently 11-6 on the season.
The Jackets, of course, have not made an NCAA Women’s Tournament since 2014. Currently, in their first year under Nell Fortner, the Jackets could be close to ending that drought.
Currently, the Yellow Jackets are ranked 41st in RPI according to WarrenNolan.com. WarrenNolan also has the Yellow Jackets with a projected final record of 23-6. With 11 games left on the season, the Jackets only have games against three ranked opponents left with North Carolina State, Louisville, and Florida State left on the schedule.
Outside of those three-games, the Jackets have a manageable schedule that should allow them to get into the NCAA Tournament with ease. While playing in the NCAA Tournament would be quite the achievement, the Jackets must focus on the present beginning with North Carolina on Thursday night.
