GREENSBORO, N.C. — Jasmine Thomas scored all 10 of her points in the second half and Duke (No. 8 ESPN/USA Today, No. 9 AP) pulled away late to beat Georgia Tech 67-55 on Saturday in an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinal.

The only nationally ranked team remaining in the field used a late 20-7 run to earn its 31st straight win against the fourth-seeded Yellow Jackets and advance to the league title game for the third time in coach Joanne P. McCallie’s three seasons.

Alex Montgomery had 19 points and 12 rebounds for Georgia Tech (22-9), which hasn’t beaten Duke since 1994 and was denied its first berth in the ACC championship game since 1994.

Duke, a five-time ACC champion, is in the title game for the 11th time and will face the Boston College-North Carolina State winner on Sunday.
