Georgia Tech’s Tyaunna Marshall is ESPN’s player of the week

Deservedly so:

In the process, Marshall became Georgia Tech’s all-time leading scorer and is now just 20 points from the 2,000-point career mark. Even better, the two points that broke the program’s previous record were two free throws that gave Georgia Tech its three-point cushion with 4.2 seconds left.

On Sunday, the Yellow Jackets found themselves down nine with eight minutes left at Miami, in danger of erasing all the good that the North Carolina win had meant. Marshall took the lead again, scoring six points in a 14-0 run. She then proceeded to score Georgia Tech’s final three points in the 89-87 come-from-behind win, the Yellow Jackets’ third straight victory and third consecutive road win, another key NCAA tournament marker.

Yellow Jackets coach MaChelle Joseph tweeted this picture the other night, after Marshall broke the record. That’s one of the most touching photos of the season.
