Georgia Tech Athletics

On a chilly Selection Sunday in Atlanta, the Georgia Tech’s women’s basketball team found out where it’ll start its second-consecutive NCAA tournament journey after it reached the Big Dance for the first time since 2014 last season. Tech finds itself seeded 9th in the Spokane region, matched up against #8 Kansas and a pod with #1 Stanford and #16 Montana State. Kansas/Georgia Tech is scheduled for tipoff at 7:30pm ET on March 18th on the ESPN family of networks.

Tech was last a #9 seed in the 2009 NCAA tournament — they dispatched #8 Iowa 76-62 in the Round of 64, then fell to #1 Oklahoma 50-69 in the Round of 32.

About Kansas:

The Kansas Jayhawks finished #38 in the NCAA NET rankings with a 20-9 record (11-7 in Big 12 play), receiving three votes in last Sunday’s final pre-tournament AP Poll. They fell 68-80 to Oklahoma in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 conference tournament on Friday. This will be the Jayhawks’ first NCAAT appearance since 2013.
