Wake Forest vs Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech 82, Wake Forest 62


ATLANTA (AP) - Robert Carter Jr. scored a career-high 20 points, including seven in Georgia Tech's 16-0 run to open the game, and the Yellow Jackets beat Wake Forest 82-62 on Saturday for their first Atlantic Coast Conference win.

Carter, a 6-foot-8 freshman, made nine of 10 shots from the field, including two 3-pointers.

Georgia Tech (11-7, 1-5) was never threatened as it became the last ACC team to win its first conference game. It kept its leads in double figures for the final 38 minutes.

The Yellow Jackets made four of six 3-pointers in the 16-0 run and pushed the lead to 30 points at 37-7 on a 3-pointer by another freshman, Marcus Georges-Hunt.

C.J. Harris had 18 points for Wake Forest (10-9, 3-4), which fell to 0-4 in road conference games. The Demon Deacons fell flat following their 86-84 upset of No. 18 North Carolina State on Tuesday night.

The Demon Deacons closed the first half with a 7-0 run to trail 52-29 at the break. Georgia Tech then was scoreless for almost 5 minutes to open the second half, but Wake Forest, which managed only five points in the span, couldn't seize the opportunity.

After Wake Forest cut the deficit to 18 points, Carter's 3-pointer pushed the lead to 57-36.

The Demon Deacons had a 9-0 run midway through the half, including back-to-back baskets by Arnaud William Adala Moto, to pull with 67-49. Georges-Hunt ended the run with a 3-pointer.

Georgia Tech, which ranks 10th in the ACC and 239th in the nation with its average of 64.9 points per game, had its most first-half points of the season. It finished with a scoring high for a conference game.

Georges-Hunt had 12 points. Freshman Chris Bolden, who had 3-pointers at the start and end of the opening 16-0 run, and Mfon Ufofia each had nine points. Bolden made only his third start.

Each team started three freshmen.

Wake Forest freshman forward Devin Thomas, who scored a season-high 25 points with 14 rebounds and four blocked shots in the win over N.C. State, had eight points and 13 rebounds. Thomas made only three of 10 shots from the field and committed seven turnovers, including six in the first half.

Travis McKie had 10 points and Codi Miller-McIntyre had nine for the Demon Deacons, who made only 35.1 percent of their shots (20 of 57) from the field.

Carter's previous high was 19 points against UNC Wilmington.
