MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Georgia Tech took a long time to get going, but Jacqua Williams sent the Yellow Jackets to their first NCAA tournament victory at the end of a sluggish game.

Williams swished a running one-handed shot in the lane with 2 1/2 seconds left to lift seventh-seeded Georgia Tech past 10th-seeded DePaul 55-54 on Saturday in the first round of the NCAA women's tournament.

Chioma Nnamaka's long jumper with 26 seconds remaining pulled the Yellow Jackets (21-11) within one, and Jenna Rubino was pressured near the sideline and stepped out of bounds for the Blue Demons.

After Jill Ingram missed a jumper, Williams was there at the end to make the winner and push Georgia Tech into the second round of the Dallas Regional.

Allie Quigley led DePaul (19-13) with 17 points.
