NC-Wilmington vs Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech 73, N.C.-Wilmington 66

  •  

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech freshman Robert Carter Jr. scored a career-high 19 points, and the Yellow Jackets used a late 9-0 run to rally past UNC Wilmington on the way to a 73-66 nonconference win Saturday night.

Daniel Miller scored 12 points for Georgia Tech (6-2), and freshman Marcus Georges-Hunt battled foul trouble on the way to 10 points.

UNC Wilmington's Chris Dixon scored a game-high 20 points, and Tanner Milson added 16 as they combined to make seven 3-pointers for the Seahawks (4-5).

Nate Anderson drained a trey with 5:20 left in the game to give UNC Wilmington a 62-57 edge, but Georges-Hunt re-entered the game soon thereafter with four fouls and Georgia Tech scored the next nine points and never trailed again.

UNC Wilmington out-rebounded the bigger Yellow Jackets 34-32.

Georgia Tech cruised early in the first half as Carter scored eight points and the Yellow Jackets took a 22-13 lead on his layup with 8:28 remaining.

UNC Wilmington closed the half with a 23-13 run, however, and when Milson rebounded his own missed shot and then followed with a 15-foot jumper just before the buzzer, the Seahawks took a 36-35 lead to halftime.

That was UNC Wilmington's first lead, although the Seahawks out-rebounded Georgia Tech 20-13 in the first half.

The Yellow Jackets got busy on the glass in the second half, and Georgia Tech outscored UNC Wilmington 10-2 to start the frame, taking a 45-37 lead on Mfon Udofia's 3-pointer with 16:33 left.

Georges-Hunt committed his third foul moments later, though, and upon his exit the Seahawks rallied for a 55-51 lead on Milson's fourth 3-pointer.

Milson returned the favor moments later when he fouled Georges-Hunt as the Georgia Tech freshman made a 3-pointer off a crosscourt pass from Brandon Reed on a fast break.

Georges-Hunt's free throw with 9:26 left tied the game at 55 and it stayed there until soon after he committed his fourth foul - while battling for an offensive rebound - with 7:48 left in the game.

Again, the Seahawks surged on the way to that 62-57 lead until Georges-Hunt returned to action.
