CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The fifth-seeded Georgetown University women's basketball squad fell to the fourth-seeded Georgia Institute of Technology Yellow Jackets (26-8), 76-64, Tuesday evening at Carmichael Arena in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Hoyas finish the season with a mark of 23-9.

"This was a hard-fought, tough game for our young ladies and I thought they showed great character in continuing to fight, but that's what we've done all year," said Georgetown Head Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy.

The lead went back and forth in the first half as neither squad could gain an advantage. Senior point guard Rubylee Wright (Latta, S.C./Latta) was a key hitting two big 3-pointers to keep GU in it early.

Late in the first, Georgia Tech staged a 15-4 run to build a ten-point lead as the Hoyas went scoreless for almost four minutes. However, in the final minute of play, senior forward Tia Magee (Tulsa, Okla./Jenks) hit a jumper and Wright stole the ball converting the layup on the other end to get within single digits.

The Hoyas went into the locker room trailing, 37-31.

Georgetown cut the lead to nine, 50-41, six minutes into the second on a trey by junior guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork). However, that would be the closest the Blue & Gray would get as the Yellow Jackets continued to hit 3-pointers to put the game out of reach.

At the final buzzer, Georgetown fell, 76-64.

Rodgers led the way with 14 points, while Magee added 10. Both Rodgers and senior forward Adria Crawford (Alexandria, Va./Thomas Edison) posted a squad-high six rebounds.

GU shot 33.8 percent in the contest, but the Yellow Jackets were hot hitting 50.0 percent from the field. The Blue & Gray outrebounded Tech, 42-39, and forced 17 turnovers on five steals.

Georgetown finishes the season with a mark of 23-9. The seven seniors are the winningest class in program history with a record of 93-41 as well as four-consecutive trips to the postseason including three NCAA Tournament bids and a trip to the Sweet 16 a season ago.

"Just like the other seniors, we all came here to make our own name and our own legend to start our own program," said Magee. "Before we got here, nobody knew about Georgetown, nobody took us seriously. From our freshman year we got better and better and now people know who Georgetown is. I'm crying because I'm sad that it's over, but at the same time, my four years were amazing and I wouldn't change anything about it."

Williams-Flournoy added, "I think my seniors are being a little bit hard on themselves, but that's how they are when they lose, they're not going to pat each other on the back, they're not going to give each other a whole lot of credit because it was a loss. I'm getting emotional here because these are my seven seniors, and my seven seniors came in here and they turned this program around. They gave everything that they had to this program. Our seven seniors are very special, and for our seven seniors to have won 20-plus games for the four years that they have been here has truly been amazing. I'm very sad to see these seven seniors go, but one thing's for sure: they know that what they've don't for this program and that will never be touched by any other group that comes in here, because they put Georgetown on the map."
