Georgia Tech 78, Albany, N.Y. 51

Iman Shumpert scored 24 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in

Georgia Tech’s 78-51 victory over Albany on Wednesday night.

Mfon Udofia and Daniel Miller each added 10 points for Georgia

Tech, which was coming off a humiliating blowout loss at nearby

Kennesaw State two days ago.

The Yellow Jackets (2-1) took their biggest lead at 34 on

Shumpert’s layup early in the second half. They committed 10

turnovers to Albany’s 25 and scored 32 points off Great Dane

miscues.

Tim Ambrose scored 16 points to lead Albany (0-3).

Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt kept his starting lineup intact

for the third straight game, but sophomore guard Glen Rice Jr.

played only 11 minutes and was 0 of 3 from the field, going

scoreless for the first time since a loss at Virginia last Jan.
