Presbyterian vs. Georgia Tech Final Score: Yellow Jackets mount second-half comeback in 52-38 win

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets trailed by one at halftime, but smart play and good ball control saw them take the game in the second half.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets easily took on the Presbyterian College Blue Hose, coming out ahead in a low-scoring affair, 52-38. Tech shot only 19-of-57 (33 percent), but was helped by 23 points off turnovers and solid free-throw shooting. Tech handed the ball over only seven times, compared to 18 times by Presbyterian, and the Yellow Jackets committed only 11 fouls against Presbyterian's 20.

Presbyterian was ahead at haltime, 25-24, but the Yellow Jackets managed to dominate the second half, 28-13. That included 16 unanswered points to open the half, a stretch of more than seven minutes that saw six Blue Hose turnovers.

Marcus Georges-Hunt and Robert Carter were the leading scorers for the Yellow Jackets, both with 10 points and four rebounds. Mfon Udofia, Daniel Miller and Kammeon Holsey added seven points each, with Miller also contributing nine boards.

Tech is now 2-0 in the early going. They next play on Thursday, a 9 p.m. ET game against the Rice Owls.
