Both teams go into Sunday’s matinee with unblemished records, as Georgia Tech last clinched a road win on Wednesday by a 57-51 in Auburn. Cameron Swartz led a quartet of Yellow Jackets that scored in double figures and a game-high 16 points to lead Tech offensively for the third straight game. Georgia Tech held Auburn to just 26.3 percent (20-76) shooting for the game and held their opponent on under 30 percent shooting for the third time this season. Nerea Hermosa led Tech with her first double-digit performance of the season on the glass and grabbed 10 rebounds.

Taking to the streets for the first time this season, Georgia enters Sunday’s competition with a 4-0 record. The Lady Bulldogs recently had a win against Kennesaw State. All 11 players saw play action against the Owls and were passed by Brittany Smith by 20 points. Diamond Battles leads the team offensively this season with an average of 13.3 points per game. Georgia will be led by first-year head coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson, a graduate who joined the program after coaching at UCF from 2016-22.

In a longstanding rivalry, Georgia Tech and Georgia meet on the hardwood for the 45th time in program history. Georgia leads the all-time streak 36-8, although Georgia Tech has won three of their last four meetings, including last year’s in Athens. Georgia leads the series when she competes in Atlanta, 13-5.

competition initiative

In a joint effort, Georgia Tech, the Georgia Tech Foundation, Georgia Tech Athletics and the Alexander-Tharpe Fund have joined forces to accelerate scholarship funding for students and athletes with the launch of the Competitive Drive Initiative. The initiative begins with the Accelerate GT Match Program, where every new donation to AT Fund’s Athletic Scholarship Fund made through December 31 will be matched dollar for dollar by the Georgia Tech Foundation up to $2.5 million . Should Accelerate GT reach its fundraising goal of $2.5 million, the gift would result in a $5 million impact to Georgia Tech Athletics.
