ATLANTA (AP) Robert Carter Jr. tied his season high with 13 points and added a season-high 15 rebounds Tuesday, when Georgia Tech ran all over Mississippi Valley State in the first half on the way to a 76-59 win.

Carter, a sophomore forward, also had four assists and blocked three shots. He did most of his damage in the first half as the Yellow Jackets used a 27-2 run to build a 41-14 halftime lead. He had seven points and 10 rebounds before intermission.

Tech (5-1) had its way inside with the Delta Devils (1-5), outscoring the much smaller SWAC squad 30-0 in the paint in the first half. The final tally was 44-14 for the Yellow Jackets, who played many subs in the second half.

MVSU made 11-of-29 3-pointers in the game, and junior guard Anthony McDonald made three on the way to scoring a team-high 17 points.

Tech senior Trae Golden and freshman Quinton Stephens scored 10 points each for the Jackets.

MVSU redshirt freshman guard Jordan Washington added 16 points off the bench, including four treys, but for a long time the long ball was all the Delta Devils had.

In fact, all four of their field goals in the first half were 3-pointers. They were 0-for-16 on two-point tries over the first 20 minutes.

The first half turned ugly after just a few minutes.

MVSU's DeAngelo Priar, who scored 14 points, tied the game at 6 with a 3-point shot with 14:53 remaining, but the Delta Devils did not score another field goal for more than 12 minutes. By the time McDonald hit another trey for MSVU with 2:32 left in the half, it merely cut the Yellow Jackets lead to 33-11.

Priar and McDonald were the only two players to score from the field for MVSU in the first half, when nine of their teammates attempted shots but failed to score while missing all 18 of their combined shots.

As the Delta Devils sent scoreless from the field during Tech's 27-2 run, eight different Yellow Jackets scored field goals. Senior post men Kam Holsey and Daniel Miller led the way during that stretch with six points each, and eight Tech makes were layups in that time.
