ATLANTA (AP) - NCAA scoring leader Erick Green scored 28 points and Virginia Tech rallied for a 70-65 overtime victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday to end a four-game losing streak.

Green, who averages 24.6 points per game, had only 8 points in the first half but helped lead the Hokies back from a deficit of 11 points at 43-32.

Virginia Tech (10-6, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) took its first ACC win under first-year coach James Johnson.

Georgia Tech (10-5, 0-3) remained winless in the league with its third straight loss. The Yellow Jackets were held without a field goal in the final 7 minutes of regulation.

Robert Carter Jr. led Georgia Tech with 12 points despite making only 2 of 12 shots from the field. Mfon Udofia and freshman Marcus Georges-Hunt each had 11.

Cadarian Raines scored on a follow shot with 1:01 remaining in regulation to trim Georgia Tech's lead to 55-53. Following a missed jumper by Carter, Green made two free throws with 23.9 seconds remaining for the first tie of the second half.

Georgia Tech called a timeout with 20.6 seconds left. Udofia worked the clock before missing a jumper. Virginia Tech grabbed the rebound and called timeout with 3 seconds remaining.

Green missed a long 3-pointer to send the game to overtime.

Virginia Tech scored the first three baskets of overtime as the Yellow Jackets' cold shooting continued. C.J. Barksdale, who had 11 points, opened the bonus 5-minute period with a basket, followed by a 3-pointer by Jarell Eddie and a jumper from Green for a 62-55 lead.

Udofia ended Georgia Tech's field-goal drought with a basket. Chris Bolden and Udofia had late 3-pointers, but Robert Brown had two baskets to protect Virginia Tech's lead. Brown had 10 points.

Going back to last season, Green has scored in double figures in 19 straight games, the ACC's longest active streak.

Green, a senior guard, has scored 21 or more points in 15 of 16 games this season.

Carter banked in a 3-pointer with 4 seconds remaining in the first half to give the Yellow Jackets at 25-22 halftime lead.
