Miami vs Georgia Tech: Yellow Jackets drop ACC opener

Josh D. Weiss-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Tech's six-game winning streak ended on Saturday.

Mfon Udofia and Kammeon Holsey were the only Georgia Tech players to score in double-figures as the Yellow Jackets dropped their ACC opener to Miami, 62-49, on Saturday.

Georgia Tech shot just 32.7 percent from the floor as a team, including 5-of-18 from three-point territory.

Yellow Jackets coach Brian Gregory told Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal Constitution that "at this particular point, on Jan. 5, they're a better team than we are."

Gregory was also dissappointed in his team's inability to grab defensive rebounds. The Hurricanes had 10 offensive rebounds in the game.

Georgia Tech was unable to put a string of good offensive and defensive possessions together to make a run at Miami's double-digit lead, according to Gregory.

The loss snapped Georgia Tech's six game winning streak and dropped them to 0-1 in conference play heading into a game against No. 23 N.C. State on Wednesday. Miami improved to 1-0 in conference play with the win.
