Georgia Tech vs Clemson final score: Yellow Jackets get first ACC win

USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Tech rolled Sunday for its first conference win of the year.

Sydney Wallace had 19 points for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, and they claimed their first ACC win of the season with a 81-59 victory over the Clemson Tigers.

The Yellow Jackets (8-6, 1-2) took control of the game after a first half in which they led, but never dominated. Georgia Tech stretched its first-half lead as wide as eight three times -- that's where it sat at halftime -- but never any wider before the intermission.

It was Nikki Dixon that kept the Tigers (4-10, 0-3) in the game as long as they were. She scored 11 points in the first half and finished with 20 to buoy a Clemson offense that shot 33.8 percent from the floor.

WIth the score held at 53-43 midway through the second half, the Yellow Jackets went on an 11-0 run to put Clemson in a hole from which it would not recover. It was at the end of that stretch when Georgia Tech took a 21-point lead at 64-43 with 11 minutes to play.

Georgia Tech returns to play Thursday at home against the Virginia Cavaliers.
