By Gyusung Sim

In the story, "No. 16 Lady Vols defeat No. 20 Georgia Tech 71 - 54," numbers were used in various ways. Firstly, numbers were used to identify players. They were commented as their back numbers. Secondly, numbers were used to provide scores of games. They were usually said winner's score first, and loser's score was following. Thirdly, numbers were used as statistics. Sometimes, reports used numbers to express how many years players have played, or how many audiences were there in the game. Numbers made the story much easier to be read. The reporter used math to crunch numbers and tell the story effectively to explain to readers.
