No. 19 Duke women drop Georgia Tech 77-59, tie school mark

By The Associated Press

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Lexie Brown scored 24 points with six rebounds and six assists and No. 19 Duke tied the school record with its 30th straight regular-season home win, topping Georgia Tech 77-59 on Thursday night.

Rebecca Greenwell had 18 points, giving her 1,718 for her career and seventh on the Blue Devils' career list. Jade Williams added a career-high 16 on 7-of-8 shooting and matched Greenwell's eight rebounds. Brown surpassed 1,900 points for her career at Maryland and Duke.

The Blue Devils (18-5, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) were without injured Haley Gorecki, who is day to day,

The Yellowjackets (13-10, 2-8), down a dozen at halftime, were within four midway through the fourth quarter but a 15-2 run wrapped it up as Tech went 0 for 5 with three turnovers and Duke made its last seven shots.

Antonia Peresson had 17 on five 3s and Kaylan Pugh 16 for Georgia Tech.
