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.
