Maryland vs Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech 63, Maryland 61


ATLANTA (AP) - Sophomore Kammeon Holsey recorded his first double-double of his career with 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgia Tech used stifling defense in the second half to beat Maryland 63-61 on Saturday.

The win was just the second in the past 13 games for the Yellow Jackets (10-18, 3-11 Atlantic Coast Conference), who snapped a four-game losing streak. Offensively, Georgia Tech had a balance performance with six players who scored at least seven points.

Georgia Tech, which lost 56-37 to Clemson Tuesday while scoring fewer points than in any game since 1980, was missing leading scorer Glen Rice Jr., who remains suspended, and reserve center-forward Nate Hicks, who is recovering from mononucleosis.

Yellow Jackets center Daniel Miller added 10 points and four second-half blocked shots.

The Terrapins made just 7-of-30 shots in the second half, but still managed to regain the lead when Terrell Stoglin -- the ACC's leading scorer with a 21.1-point average -- pushed Maryland to a 56-55 lead on a driving layup through traffic with 2:02 left in the game. He led the Terps with 18 points, but made just 5-of-17 shots.

That lead didn't last long.

Georgia Tech junior point guard Mfon Udofia, who was on the bench with four fouls as the Terrapins rallied to re-take the lead, countered with a drive of his own. His layup and the ensuing free throw gave Tech a 58-56 lead with 1:43 left in the contest, and the Jackets never trailed from there.

Maryland made it interesting, however.

Soon after Stoglin was called for traveling, Georgia Tech guard Brandon Reed hit a 3-pointer for a five-point lead with 27 seconds to go.

Maryland center Alex Len threw down an uncontested dunk to pull the Terps within three points, 61-58, with 18 seconds left, and then Georgia Tech's Jason Morris turned the ball over after that when he failed to inbound the ball within five seconds.

But Stoglin missed a 3-pointer seconds later, and Holsey rebounded with 11 seconds remaining.

He made one of two free throws with 8 seconds left, and although Stoglin added a 3-pointer, the Jackets held on.

Morris had nine points for the Jackets, including 3-pointers on Tech's first two possessions of the game, and Reed and Nick Foreman added eight points each.

Sean Mosley scored 16 points for Maryland, which made 6-of-9 from beyond the arc in the first half and just 1-of-5 after halftime.
