Georgia Tech fell to 10-3 overall and 1-1 in the league.

Senior Jocelyn Logan-Friend (Cheverly, Md.) and Takisha Granberry (Charlotte N.C.) added eight points each.

"LaTonya Blue played a tremendous game," Ryan added. "She did everything tonight." "It feels really good," Blue said "We knew they were 9-0 at home and we only play them once this year. We showed a lot of character."
