Washington vs. Georgia Tech final score: GT (rambling) wrecks Huskies in upset

Mark Dolejs-US PRESSWIRE

The Yellow Jackets rode a huge rebounding advantage and a terrific game from Aaliyah Whiteside to knock off the Huskies and reach the .500 mark.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets knocked off the Washington Huskies 52-44 in an upset fueled by a massive rebounding edge and a standout performance from freshman forward Aaliyah Whiteside.

The Yellow Jackets (5-5) got 18 points from Whiteside, which was nearly 10 points higher than the average for the first-year player from Memphis. Georgia Tech also out-rebounded the Huskies (7-3) 56-30 in the game, with both teams shooting under 30% from the field. Reigning ACC player of the week Tyaunna Marshall led the team with fifteen boards gathered and three steals, although she was just 4-16 from the field. The Huskies came into the game having won five of their last six, but the Yellow Jackets smothered the Washington offense with nine steals and 17 turnovers forced.

Georgia Tech has lost to ranked teams in four of their five defeats, with the fifth coming in overtime against a strong Syracuse orange team.
