Marquette vs. Georgia Tech final score: Yellow Jackets hang on for 76-72 win

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

The Yellow Jackets didn't shoot as well as Marquette did, but 27 steals helped them come away with the 76-72 win.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets were outshot and outrebounded by the Marquette Golden Eagles on Sunday night, but they still managed to come away with a 76-72 win. A big reason why was 23 points, six assists, and ten steals from Dawnn Maye, who's double digit steals led Georgia Tech's impressive tally of 27 steals as a team. Marquette turned the ball over 37 times, and that helped key the Yellow Jackets' win.

Brittany Jackson had 21 points, five rebounds and five steals as well for Georgia Tech. They shot 41.8 percent from the floor as a team, which isn't necessarily terrible, but Marquette was able to hit 46.3 percent of their shots, and shot 41.7percent from three point range.

Katie Young led the Golden Eagles with 18 points and nine rebounds. Three other players were able to tally double digit point totals, but their poor ball security doomed them to the loss.
