Georgia Tech tops Charlotte 67-66
Placeholder Image

Marcus Georges-Hunt scored a career-high 25 points, Charles Mitchell and Quinton Stephens each added nine points and Georgia Tech edged Charlotte 67-66 on Tuesday night.

Travis Jorgenson drove the ball past Mike Thorne Jr. on the Yellow Jackets' final possession and bounce-passed to Georges-Hunt on the left side. Rather than pull up for a mid-range jumper, Georges-Hunt went straight to the basket and scored over Thorne for the game's last basket.

After Charlotte coach Alan Major called timeout with 1.9 seconds remaining, Terrence Williams missed a fadeaway 3-point attempt at the buzzer.

Georgia Tech (9-3) has won six of eight.

Pierria Henry, whose two free throws with 11 seconds remaining gave the 49ers a one-point lead, finished with 14 points. Williams had 13, Torin Dorn added 12 and Willie Clayton, who fouled out, scored 10 for Charlotte (6-6).
