CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Sasha Goodlett had 13 points to help No. 22 Georgia Tech edge No. 22 North Carolina 56-54 on Sunday.
Metra Walthour added 11 points and Tyaunna Marshall 10 for the Yellow Jackets (18-7, 8-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who earned their first win against a ranked team in eight tries this season.
Laura Broomfield had 15 points and 11 rebounds for North Carolina (17-8, 7-5), which has lost three straight — all to ranked teams.
It was the first game between teams with the same ranking in women’s basketball since Jan. 14, 2003, when No. 14 Mississippi State beat No. 14 Vanderbilt 78-75. STATS LLC does not have a record of a men’s game matching same-ranked teams.
UNC had its biggest lead of the game at 51-44 on a Broomfield basket with 6:41 to play but the Yellow Jackets took over from there, scoring 12 straight points until Brittany Rountree’s 3-pointer at the buzzer.
