GT defeats FSU women

Georgia Tech made its shots and free throws down the stretch.

Nicki Ekhomu scored 21 points on 9 of 17 shooting but No. 17 Florida State fell at Georgia Tech 65-62 on Sunday afternoon.

Kiah Gillespie had nine points and 10 rebounds but the Yellow Jackets won the rebounding edge 37-28.

The Seminoles shot 24 of 53 (45.3 percent) from the floor.

FSU (21-6, 10-6 ACC) may be headed for a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament given that the Seminoles have lost two of their last three games. The top four seeds in each region (the top 16 overall) will host a four-team regional, meaning that FSU will likely be on the road for a first- and second-round game.

Francesca Pan scored 23 points to lead GT (18-10, 9-8).

FSU plays two more home games to finish the regular season, beginning on Thursday against Clemson at 7 p.m. (Fox Sports Florida). That will be a “Paint it Pink” game at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

    This team hasn’t been the same since the Syracuse debacle! No confidence, no hustle, and no heart. With a chance to host the first 2 rounds of the Tournament still alive – even this was not enough to inspire them or motivate them. From what I have seen they have given up. Coach Sue has had far less talented teams that would fight tooth and nail til the very end. Win or lose they always gave their all. They played with heart. Forget about the stars next to their names. Let’s get back to signing the warriors; the ones that are gonna fight to the final second in every game! What I’m seeing on the court now is a disgrace to all the past Seminoles who fought to get us the respect and recognition we now enjoy. It’s time to bring the blood, sweat and tears back to the program and get rid of some of these prima donnas on the team.

    The ladies should watch the men practice…and learn from it.
