ATLANTA — Georgia Tech star Marcus Georges-Hunt will miss the ACC tournament because of a broken foot.

He fractured the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot early in Tuesday night's 81-49 loss to No. 19 North Carolina.

Georges-Hunt is Georgia Tech's leading scorer. The junior swingman is averaging 13.6 points and 5.5 rebounds, the Yellow Jackets' only player scoring in double figures this season.

"Marcus has had such a tremendous junior year, it is very disappointing to all of us that he won't be able to complete his great play in Greensboro at the ACC tournament," Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory said. "Marcus is such a determined and committed athlete. We know he will make a full recovery and come back stronger and better."

Georgia Tech finished its regular season at 12-18 overall and 3-15 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, including four straight losses.

The Yellow Jackets will play Wake Forest or Boston College in the opening round of the ACC tournament on Tuesday in Greensboro, North Carolina.
