Siena Vs. Georgia Tech Final Score: Glen Rice Jr Scores 23 To Lead Yellow Jackets Past Saints

Georgia Tech took advantage of their superior athleticism to avenge last season's loss as they defeated Siena by a score of 72-44 at Gwinnett Arena. Glen Rice came off the bench to score 17 of his 23 points in the first half on a night where the Yellow Jackets shot 50 percent from the floor and dominated the boards. 

Tech jumped out to a big lead early to lead 37-18 at halftime. The Saints struggled against Tech's size and quickness as things didn't get any better in the second half. Kammeon Holsey joined Rice in double figures with 14 points for the Yellow Jackets. Eleven of the twelve players that Brian Gregory used in the game scored including freshman Julian Royal who finished with six points and four rebounds. 

However, it was Rice that set the tone early for the Yellow Jackets. Rice still hasn't started a game this season after being suspended for the first three contests. He did a little bit of everything against Siena finishing with 23 points, six rebounds and three steals. 

O.D. Anosike led the Saints with 13 points and nine rebounds. Kyle Downey chipped in 11 points. 

The Yellow Jackets will now break for the Thanksgiving Holiday before taking part in the ACC/Big 10 Challenge on November 29 when they will take on Northwestern.
