Georgia Tech 62, Georgia 54

Freshman Marcus Georges-Hunt scored a career-high 18 points and

Georgia Tech never trailed while beating Georgia 62-54 on Tuesday


Georgia Tech (5-2) has won back-to-back games in the state

rivalry for the first time since three straight wins from 1992-94.

The wins have come in the Yellow Jackets’ first two seasons with

coach Brian Gregory.

Mfon Udofia added 12 points for Georgia Tech, including a

three-point play with about 1 minute remaining after Georgia cut

the Yellow Jackets’ lead to 55-50.

Georgia Tech fans chanted ”ACC! ACC!” in the final minute,

mocking Georgia fans’ ”SEC! SEC!” chant in the Bulldogs’ football

win over the Yellow Jackets two weeks ago.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led Georgia (2-6) with 16 points. The

Bulldogs had no other scorer in double figures and made only 31.6

percent of their shots (18 of 57) from the field.
