Presswire

Georgia Tech's women's hoops team found itself in the finals of the ACC Tournament for the first time in 20 years where they dropped a 68-65 heart breaker in the tournament final.

A Tyaunna Marshall layup with 2:33 remaining gave the Yellow Jackets a 62-61 lead. Marshall later extended that lead to 63-61 with 2:05 to go by making one of two at the free throw line. Tech wouldn't score again until Marshall hit two more free throws with just 13 seconds remaining.

Maryland's Lynetta Kizer tied the game at 63-63 with 1:42 to go and then Anjale Barrett put the Terps up for good with another jumper with 1:07 left. With the Yellow Jackets down four, Marshall stole the inbounds pass and was fouled and sunk both free throws to pull to within 67-65. Anjale Barrett made one of two free throws to extend the lead to 68-65 on Maryland's next possession and Georgia Tech's desperation three-point attempt at the buzzer fell short ending the game.

Tyaunna Marshall led the Yellow Jackets with 25 points while Sasha Goodlett added 20. Maryland's Alyssa Thomas led all scorers with 29 points. Lynetta Kizer and Kim Rodgers added 11 and 10 points off the bench for the Terps.
