CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Marcus Georges-Hunt scored 24 points and Georgia Tech earned its first Atlantic Coast Conference victory of the season by upsetting No. 23 Miami 70-50 on Wednesday night.
The Yellow Jackets shot a season-high 57 percent, well above their season average of 41 percent, in part because they repeatedly drove inside for easy baskets. They scored 34 points in the paint.
Georgia Tech (10-10, 1-7 ACC) was off to its worst start in the league since 2002, and won for the first time since Dec. 30. Miami (14-6, 4-3) lost at home while ranked for the third time this season, with each defeat coming against an unranked team.
Tech was in control from the start, making seven consecutive shots to lead 15-4, and Miami was never closer than six points after that.
