Boston College vs Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech 51, Boston College 47


ATLANTA (AP) - Glen Rice Jr. scored three points in the final minute, Brandon Reed hit a pair of free throws in the closing seconds and Georgia Tech snapped a six-game losing streak with a 51-47 victory over Boston College on Saturday.

In a matchup of two struggling teams, Rice finished with 11 points and Kammeon Holsey and Daniel Miller each added 10 for the Yellow Jackets (9-14, 2-7 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Matt Humphrey scored 15 points and Lonnie Jackson had 10 for the Eagles (7-16, 2-7 ACC), who have dropped six straight and nine of 11.

The Yellow Jackets never trailed after Holsey's inside runner made it 46-44 with 2:55 remaining, but Boston College pulled within one at 48-47 on Jackson's two free throws with 16.4 seconds to go.

Rice put back his own missed runner to make it 48-45 with 48.9 seconds left and added a free throw with three-tenths of a second remaining.

Georgia Tech and Boston College showed why they are the ACC's lowest-scoring teams.

After Dennis Clifford's layup gave them a 12-11 lead at the 10:39 mark, the Eagles went scoreless over their next 15 possessions until Humphrey's buzzer-beating 3 left Georgia Tech up 20-19 at halftime.

Boston College led once three times the second half, the last at 36-34 on Ryan Anderson's jumper at the 9:20 mark.

With Jackson making an inbound pass in front of their bench with 44.4 seconds left, the Eagles managed just two more field-goal attempts on their final two possessions. Rice grabbed a defensive rebound on the Anderson's missed 3 with 7 seconds to go.

Rice went 4 of 10 from the field for Georgia Tech and Mfon Udofia, despite handing out six assists with no turnovers, was 0 for 7 from the field.

The ACC home victory was a first for first-year coach Brian Gregory, whose team enjoyed a rare game in which its assists (12) topped its turnovers (nine).
