Lady Deacs Swarmed by Jackets 82-64

Wake Forest's starting lineup huddles before tip-off against Georgia Tech - Dana E. Warren

Georgia Tech's pressure defense too much to handle for Demon Deacons.

WINSTON-SALEM Junior Tyaunna Marshall scored 27 points to lead the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets over Wake Forest, 82-64 on Thursday night. The Jackets employed pressure defense throughout the game to create 24 Deacon turnovers. Georgia Tech (12-14, 5-10 ACC) also got 20 points from the sharpshooting Sydney Wallace, who finished 5-8 from 3-point range.

Wake Forest was led by seniors Lakevia Boykin (14 points, 4 rebounds) and Sandra Garcia (16 points, 15 rebounds) in defeat. The Deacons (11-16, 4-11 ACC) held an 8-2 lead at the first media timeout, but that lead quickly evaporated as Georgia Tech imposed its defensive will, eventually leading to 30 points off of Wake turnovers. The Deacons were also hampered by foul trouble, forcing coach Jen Hoover to use reserves Susie Webster and Christelle Shembo, who to date had not earned much playing time.

Garcia has now recorded two straight double-doubles, while Boykin recorded her second straight game in double figures after a brief slump. Senior Asia Williams was once again an effective passer, recording 8 assists after dishing out 10 in her previous game at Duke. Point guard Chelsea Douglas added 9 points for Deacs, marking only the third time all season she hasn't been in double figures.

The Deacs travel to Virginia on Monday night to meet the Cavaliers (7:00 p.m. RSN), who defeated Wake Forest 69-64 on January 27 in Winston-Salem. Wake Forest's next home game is next Thursday against Virginia Tech. Thursday's game will be Senior Night for the Deacon seniors. Tip-off is at 6:30pm.
