Five Yellow Jackets score in double figures, including Danielle Hamilton-Carter's team-high 13, but Georgia Tech can't stop a second-half Seminoles comeback, falling to Florida State, 85-78.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets women's basketball team was unable to continue a four-game winning streak, dropping its second straight conference meeting to start the season, this time to the Florida State Seminoles, 85-78.

The Yellow Jackets kept it close all night, and led most of the way despite Florida State's Leonor Rodriguez's 23 points and the Seminoles' Natasha Howard's 18 rebounds.

Five Yellow Jackets scored in double figures against the ranked Seminoles, including Danielle Hamilton-Carter's team-high 13 points. Point guard Dawnn Maye posted 12 assists on the night and Georiga Tech took a seven-point lead into half time.

But in the second half the 12-1 Seminoles exploded for 47 points while Georgia Tech could only muster 33 as the Seminoles turned the halftime deficit into an eventual seven-point margin of victory.

Brittany Jackson's three-pointer with 4:20 remaining gave the Yellow Jackets a 74-72 lead, but it would prove to be Georgia Tech's final advantage, as the Seminoles closed the game on a 13-4 run to secure the victory.
