Maryland-GT: Buzz Off

By Jeff Lippman - March 02, 2007

As predicted, we had another blow out, this time to the tune of 75-59.

I still won't say Maryland played great, but they got the job done and they'll meet North Carolina tomorrow in the semifinals.

After attempting to figure out why coach Joseph picked up the technical, the best answer I could get was for arguing with the refs. That much I figured.

On a side note, Georgia Tech junior Chioma Nnamaka left the game with an injury and was later carted off the sidelines with her neck stabilized. I was just told that it was due to dehydration and she'll be fine.

Maryland was led by Crystal Langhorne who had 18 points, nine rebounds and made one nifty move after another. Also scoring in double figures for the Terps was Marissa Coleman with 16 and 11 rebounds, and Kristi Toliver finished with 12 points.

Tech had four players finish in double figures. Stephanie Higgs had 16 on 6-of-21 shooting to pace the Jackets, followed by Janie Mitchell's 14, Nnamaka's 12 and freshman Brigitte Ardossi's 11--the first time she's scored in double figures.

LaMont Jordan said after the game that he didn't think the officiating was overly terrible. He said that he thought some calls were missed in both directions. But there was a few times when he felt the need to get up and scream in the refs ear. He finished by adding, "hopefully the refs will be better tomorrow."

Who's LaMont Jordan?

Tell me LaMont wore his Shay Doron jersey.

Where did he GET that?!
