ATLANTA — Francesca Pan scored 23 points and Georgia Tech beat No. 17 Florida State 65-62 on Sunday, giving the Yellow Jackets a season sweep.
Georgia Tech (18-10, 9-8 ACC) won 67-52 on Jan. 9 at then-No. 11 Florida State and with its second win over the Seminoles improved its NCAA Tournament at-large prospects.
Pan was only 8-of-22 shooting overall but 6 of 13 from the arc.
A 6-0 surge got the Seminoles within a point at 61-60 with a minute left in the game. But Georgia Tech sandwiched four free throws around a basket by Kiah Gillespie to go up three, and Nicki Ekhomu’s 3-point try fell short to end the game.
Florida State (21-6, 11-5) had a nine-point lead midway through the third quarter, but Pan scored five points to start a 16-2 run to end the period with a 52-47 lead.
Ekhomu finished 21 points, Kourtney Weber had 12, and Gillespie grabbed 10 rebounds to go with nine points.
