Yellowjackets learned from loss to Oklahoma

NORMAN — The road to the Women’s Final Four for the Oklahoma basketball team had one major roadblock last year.

A looming second-round bout against eighth-seeded Iowa.

In Iowa City.

The Sooners, however, never had to deal with the Hawkeyes. Instead, the road warriors from Georgia Tech cleared out Iowa, and OU’s path to St. Louis.

This NCAA Tournament, Georgia Tech again has the chance to do damage on the road.

Only this time, against OU.

In Norman.

First, though, the sixth-seeded Yellow Jackets (23-9) will have to take care of No. 11-seeded Arkansas-Little Rock (26-5) tonight in the first round of the Norman Sub-Regional at the Lloyd Noble Center.

"We’ve been in the tournament four years in a row, and three of the four years we have been sent where we could potentially play the host or have played the host,” said Georgia Tech coach MaChelle Joseph.

"So it’s a difficult challenge. But it’s like I told my team, you have to earn the right not to be on somebody’s home floor, and we didn’t beat a top-10 opponent.
