In a sign of what may be in the future of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, sophomore swingman Jason Morris put up 22 big points off the bench to give the hometown crowd a 69-62 victory over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Saturday afternoon in Phillips Arena.
Morris was 5-for-7 from three-point range and also chipped in 5 rebounds and 3 assists for the Yellow Jackets in their last game of the regular season. Tech also received strong contributions from Mfon Udofia and Daniel Miller who put up 15, and 11 points respectively. Wake Forest was lead in scoring by C.J. Harris with 17 points.
The Yellow Jackets finished the season with an 11-19 overall record and a 4-12 conference mark. The time for growth begins now, as the ACC will include two new additions next season in Syracuse and Pittsburgh, and a young team will have to improve next season to earn a postseason bid.
