After playing the first half and trailing by a single point, the Yellow Jackets (3-1) let things get away from them a bit. The offense was the biggest issue, only able to generate 24 points in the final 20 minutes.
Both teams were dreadful from beyond the 3-point line, with Georgia Tech shooting 2-of-15 while California only made good on 3-of-14. However, the big difference was in free throws. The Yellow Jackets only got to the line 10 times, hitting seven. The Golden Bears drew 26 shots from the charity stripe, earning 19 easy points.
California also out-rebounded Georgia Tech by a wide margin of 38 to 27.
