Georgia Tech Wins Fourth Straight Home Game

DULUTH, Ga. - Sasha Goodlett's sixth double-double of the year led the Georgia Tech women's basketball team (15-6, 5-3 ACC) to its fourth consecutive home win over the Virginia Cavaliers (15-7, 3-5 ACC), 63-53, Wednesday night at the Arena at Gwinnett Center.

Goodlett finished with game-highs of 14 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Yellow Jackets. Sophomore Tyaunna Marshall tallied her 20th double figure scoring game of the year with 13 points, and senior point guard Metra Walthour added 11 points, six assists and six rebounds as Tech improved to 7-2 at home this season.

"You just have to start embracing teams focusing on you," Goodlett said. "Once you start putting up really good numbers, teams are going to know that they have to figure out a way to stop you. My job is to come night in and night out, and give my team what it needs. And it needs me to not be denied and be the post presence. When we're all on the same page, we're a pretty good team."
