The Georgia women’s basketball team defeated Georgia Tech 60-53 on Sunday with a second-half rally. 

 

MacKenzie Engram led Georgia (9-1) with 14 points and 10 rebounds, her second double-double of the season.  Engram also had a career-high four assists. Caliya Robinson added 12 points for the Lady Bulldogs.

Georgia Tech led 29-26 at the half before Georgia went on a 20-7 third-quarter run to take control on the game.

“Obviously you don’t want to go into halftime down, but we knew that we were going to make a run,” said Engram, a senior forward. “We knew that they were possibly going to make a run and we just needed to continue to play our game, execute the game plan and box out. We talked about being aggressive, because we knew they were going to try to come out and punch us in the face, so we had to just take it.”

Chanin Scott led Georgia Tech (9-2) in scoring with 14 points, including two 3-pointers. 

It was sixth win in the last seven meetings in the series between the in-state rivals. Georgia owns a 16-0 all-time record against the Yellow Jackets in Athens and a 35-5 lead in the all-time series.
