Carter leads Georgia Tech past Virginia Tech 62-51
Question of the Day
It’s been a long time coming for the Yellow Jackets, who also lost Jason Morris and Travis Jorgenson to season-injuries by early December.
“Today we came out and kept it up,” Miller said. “Trae says he’s full go now. I thought he looked pretty good today. Robert’s playing. Kam has the knee, but he’s always strong for us. It’s a good way to go into the tournament. “
The Yellow Jackets (15-16, 6-12 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won two straight after ending a four-game skid with an upset victory at No. 7 Syracuse on Tuesday.
Coming off the 67-62 win over Syracuse - the most illustrious victory in coach Brian Gregory’s three-year tenure - Georgia Tech never trailed after Golden’s 3-pointer made it 19-18 with 3:40 left in the first half.
Even so, the Jackets began the day 13th in the 15-team ACC and are likely to miss the NCAA tournament and the NIT for the fourth straight year. They have a 16-36 league record under Gregory.
Virginia Tech, under second-year coach James Johnson, finished last in the league for the second straight season.
“It’s frustrating, but we’re motivated for the tournament,” van Zegeren said. “We beat Miami twice, so they’re going to be energized to come back at us.”
Carter scored from the left baseline and hit a jumper on consecutive possessions as the Jackets went up by 16.
Johnson sought to calm down the Hokies, calling a timeout with 12:40 remaining. But after Marshall Wood hit a 3 from the left wing for Virginia Tech, Johnson followed with another 30-second timeout 2 minutes later with the Hokies trailing 50-33.
