Jackets Come Back to Upset Terps


#5 seed Georgia Tech beat #4 seed Maryland at their own game to earn a big upset and book passage into semifinal Saturday. In a game of runs, the Jackets rebounded from a 22-2 Maryland run thanks to defense, rebounding and timely shooting. The star of the game was Tech's hulking center Sasha Goodlett, who outplayed Maryland star Lynetta Kizer, holding Kizer to just 9 points and 4 rebounds. Goodlett kept Tech in the game early, passed the torch to superfrosh Ty Marshall (16 points) and then watched as senior Alex Montgomery took over down the stretch. Noting that coach MaChelle Joseph told her to "change her attitude", she "put the team on [my] shoulders" by hitting clutch shots. None was more important than a transition three point play that she finished with 1:11 to go after Maryland had pulled within 64-62. The Terps never got closer than four after that.

For the Terps, Brenda Frese was upset that her team was so badly outrebounded (36-27), making none-too-subtle digs at the physical play allowed by the officials and the foul trouble her own players got into. Maryland's Alyssa Thomas was killing Tech off the dribble (12 points) but only had 4 points in the second half. Her decision to play more ballhandlers in an attempt to limit Georgia Tech's backfired as her team committed 23 turnovers and got handled by Goodlett. The Terps will likely be a three or four seed in the NCAA tournament, but many teams are breathing a little easier now that they're out of the ACC tournament.

Top Performers:

  • GT Sasha Goodlett: 18 points, 9 rebounds.
  • GT Metra Walthour: 14 points, 2 steals, 4-6 from three.
  • GT Alex Montgomery: 17 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks
