Georgia Tech overwhelmed by No. 5 Duke, 68-51
ATLANTA (AP) - Even with a roster that is filling out with the return of injured players, Georgia Tech had no answer for Duke freshman Jabari Parker.
Parker had 16 points and 14 rebounds, and No. 5 Duke rolled past Georgia Tech 68-51 on Tuesday night.
Playing in his third game since his return from knee surgery, forward Robert Carter Jr. led Georgia Tech with 13 points and eight rebounds.
“I think we’re one step closer after tonight in getting as whole as we possibly can for the remainder of the season,” Gregory said.
Still Georgia Tech (13-13, 4-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) didn’t have an answer for Parker or Duke’s defensive intensity.
Georgia Tech, which trailed by only one point at halftime of its 79-57 loss at Duke on Jan. 7, trailed 43-27 at the break of the rematch.
Kammeon Holsey had 12, and Chris Bolden added 10.
Like most teams, Georgia Tech struggled to match up with the 6-foot-8 Parker.
“Unless you have a strong chest in front of him, you have no chance. No chance,” Gregory said. “There’s no question what he’s going to do when he gets the ball.
“The way he drives, it’s impossible not to have contact. It’s a foul every time.”
Georgia Tech center Daniel Miller had nine rebounds but only two points.
“He didn’t get the ball that much because our perimeter defense was the best it has been all year,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
