Maryland vs Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech 78, Maryland 68

  •  

ATLANTA (AP) - Robert Carter Jr. had 19 points and 10 rebounds and Georgia Tech beat Maryland 78-68 on Wednesday night, extending the Terrapins' road struggles.

Carter, a freshman, posted his fourth double-double of the season and Brandon Reed had 17 points for Georgia Tech (15-12, 5-10 Atlantic Coast Conference). Daniel Miller had 16 points and nine rebounds while making each of his 12 free throws.

The loss left Maryland 1-6 in road ACC games. Maryland (19-9, 7-8) is 15-2 at home, but its latest road loss was a damaging blow to its NCAA tournament hopes.

Dez Wells led Maryland with 15 points. Alex Len had 13 points and nine rebounds. Seth Allen had 12 points.

The Terrapins play two of their last three regular-season games on the road, starting with Saturday's visit to Wake Forest.

Georgia Tech made a strong recovery after losing its last two games, each by double digits, to North Carolina and Virginia. The Yellow Jackets need one more win to lock up a winning record in their second season with coach Brian Gregory.

The Yellow Jackets made 16 of 28 shots from the field (57.1 percent) in the first half and finished at 51 percent for the game with 22 assists on their 26 field goals.

A 3-pointer by Carter pushed Georgia Tech's lead to 10 points at 34-24, but the Terrapins answered with a 9-0 run to cut the lead to 34-33.

Georgia Tech closed the first half with baskets by Reed and Carter to lead 38-33.

Georgia Tech pushed its lead back to 10 points four times in the opening minutes of the second half before finally extending the advantage. Carter's two free throws, followed by his quick hook shot, gave Georgia Tech a 56-42 lead.

The Yellow Jackets kept the lead in double figures until a basket by Wells with 1:51 remaining cut Maryland's deficit to 71-62. Georgia Tech had a quick answer with Mfon Udofia's layup.

Miller blocked a shot by Maryland's 7-foot-1 Len early in the game, giving him 200 career blocks. He finished with three blocks for the game.
