ATLANTA (AP) Robert Carter Jr. recorded his fourth double-double of the season with 15 points and 15 rebounds to lead Georgia Tech to a 74-57 victory over visiting Kennesaw State on Monday night.

Trae Golden had 15 points and four assists for the Yellow Jackets (8-3), while Daniel Miller finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and three blocked shots.

Andrew Osemhen, averaging just 3.1 points, came off the bench to lead Kennesaw (3-8) with 13 points, 10 coming in the first half. Orlando Coleman scored 12 for the Owls.

Kennesaw cut a 16-point second-half deficit down to seven with four minutes left on a 3-point play by Yunel Brown, but Tech outscored the Owls 15-5 the rest of the way.

It was the first time that Tech and Kennesaw, a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference, had played since the Owls stunned the Yellow Jackets on Nov. 15, 2010. Tech had easily won two previous meetings.

Tech, down by three points in the first half, went on a 13-0 streak and led 38-26 at intermission as Kennesaw made just one basket in the final six minutes. Golden had eight of his 10 first-half point in the run.

Neither team made a 3-pointer in the first half, combining to go 0-for-12. Tech finished 2-for-11 and Kennesaw 2-for-16.

Tech hadn't played since Dec. 7 because of a break for semester exams, but Kennesaw had been idle even longer. The Owls' previous game was Dec. 1.

Kennesaw shot just 38 percent from the floor and was 13-for-28 from the foul line. Tech shot 46 percent and made 18 of 29 free throws.

Jason Morris, coming back from foot surgery, played in his first game this season for Tech, but didn't score in four minutes of action.

Tech will play at Vanderbilt on Saturday and at Charlotte on Dec. 29 before opening Atlantic Coast Conference play on Jan. 4 at Maryland.
