Greensboro, N.C. (ACC Tournament)

GREENSBORO, N.C. – No one had to remind favored Georgia Tech that seedings didn’t mean a lot when it came to facing Miami in the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tournament.
After taking part in two heart-stopping games against the 12th-seeded Hurricanes during the regular season, the fifth-seeded Yellow Jackets had no interest in playing a third.
Fueled by Janie Mitchell’s game-high 17 points and a season-high 15 from Jacqua Williams, Georgia Tech seized control early and cruised to a 76-49 win in Thursday’s tournament opener at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Alex Montgomery also scored 15 points and Iasia Hemingway added 12 for the Yellow Jackets (22-8), who will face fourth-seeded Virginia (22-8) in Friday’s 11 a.m. quarterfinal game.
*****Hopefully Don, Doug, or Cecil will have more on this and the rest of the tournament later today.*****
