Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball: Jackets Enter Final Week as Bubble Team

The Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball team is a bubble team in one of the most recent NCAA Women’s Bracketology updates.

The Georgia Tech women’s basketball season has not gone to plan over the last half of the season but the Yellow Jackets are still alive in the hunt to make the NCAA Women’s tournament. The Yellow Jackets (18-10, 9-8) according to ESPN’s Charlie Creme are a bubble team entering this week in the tournament.

According to Creme’s bracketology, the Yellow Jackets are one of the “final four teams in” the tournament as they enter their last week of regular season play. Alongside the Yellow Jackets are mid-major programs in James Madison, UCF, and Western Kentucky.

Moreso, as being one of the final four teams in, Creme has the Yellow Jackets as the 12-seed in the Dallas region. The Jackets first round matchup at this point would be the Indiana Hoosiers are currently 21-7 overall and 11-5 in conference play. The Jackets regional would be headlined by traditional powers, No.1 seed Baylor and No.2 seed Stanford as it stands today.

While the Yellow Jackets currently slotted as a bubble team for the NCAA Tournament is good, they could not afford a loss here in the near future. The Jackets will finish their regular season against Clemson this upcoming weekend before beginning the ACC Tournament on March 4th. The Jackets would likely need to win at least one, if not two tournament games.

If the Yellow Jackets can rattle off three or more wins against Clemson and in the tournament, their chances of ending their tournament drought dating back to 2012 will be looking mighty good. It would also be the fourth time Nell Fortner has made the NCAA Tournament, making the tournament once with Purdue and twice with Auburn.

The Yellow Jackets will hit the court for the final time in the regular season on Sunday afternoon against the Clemson Tigers. The Tigers are 7-20 in the regular season and 3-13 in conference play.
