Georgia Tech 64, Virginia Tech 54

  •  

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Kammeon Holsey scored all 13 points of his points in the first half to lift Georgia Tech to a 64-54 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday.

Marcus Georges-Hunt added 13 for the Yellow Jackets (13-9, 3-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won a road game for the first time this season and won in Blacksburg for the first time.

In the first half, the Yellow Jackets opened a 22-point lead against the cold-shooting Hokies, who missed 12 of their first 13 shots and 20 of their first 23. Georgia Tech led 37-15 after a free throw by Daniel Miller with 1:24 left and took a 37-18 advantage into halftime.

Virginia Tech's 18 first-half points marked its fewest in any half this season. The Hokies hit just six shots in the first half and shot 20.7 percent (6 of 29) from the floor.

Virginia Tech (11-12, 2-8), which lost its sixth straight game, used a 15-1 run in the second half to climb back into it. Erick Green, who came into the game leading the nation in scoring at 25.2 points per game, scored nine of those 15 points, and his basket with 10:24 remaining cut the lead to 48-37.

Virginia Tech got as close as 60-52 on a runner by Green with 31.6 seconds left, but the Yellow Jackets held on down the stretch. Georgia Tech came into the game as the ACC's worst free-throw shooting team (64.3 percent), but senior guard Mfon Udofia made four straight in the final 31 seconds to seal the game for the Yellow Jackets.

Green, who led the nation in scoring at 25.2 points per game coming in, paced the Hokies with 28 points, hitting 9 of 20 from the floor and 8 of 9 from the free-throw line. He came out of the game with 31 seconds remaining because of dehydration and had to be helped to the locker room after the game. But Virginia Tech's sports medicine staff said he was fine.

The rest of the Hokies combined to shoot 10 of 42. Virginia Tech shot a season-low 30.6 percent (19 of 62).
