PITTSBURGH - Coming off a thrilling 67-65 victory over Boston College in which Brianna Kiesel made the game-winning shot with 3.1 seconds remaining, the University of Pittsburgh women's basketball team will look to win back-to-back conference games this season when they host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Monday night.
Tip is set for 7 p.m. and the game can be seen on ESPN3.
Kiesel in the Clutch:
Kiesel can add one more accolade to her banner year as the runner in the lane with 3.1 second left was the first game winning shot of her career. Already a USBWA National Player of the Week and an ACC Player of the Week, the only thing Kiesel hadn't done this year was make a game-winning shot. Well, she can cross that off her list. Kiesel also scored the game-tying basket with 45 seconds left. The junior has scored double-figures in 27-straight games.
Asia Logan Heating Up:
Senior Asia Logan has helped Kiesel in the scoring department, especially in the last two games. Logan had 17 points at Duke and then dropped a season-high 24 points against Boston College. Logan has picked up her aggressiveness as she has gone to the free throw line 22 times in the past two games and has made 17 of those attempts.
Scouting Georgia Tech:
Georgia Tech boasts two of the top scorers in the league in Tyaunna Marshall and Kaela Davis. Marshall scores 19.1 ppg which ranks her third in the ACC, while Davis, a Freshman of the Year candidate, scores 18.2 ppg which ranks her seventh. The Yellow Jackets, who are receiving votes in the AP poll, find themselves on a two game losing streak after falling to NC State and Clemson. Georgia Tech has played five ranked teams this season and is 0-5 in those games.
The Panthers will take on their fourth ranked opponent of the season on Wednesday night, February 6, when they travel to take on No. 8 Maryland at 7 p.m.
