Devin Booker accounted for 13 points and eight rebounds for the Tigers (13-11, 5-7 ACC), followed by Milton Jennings with 12 points and six boards as the team snapped a three-game slide.

The Yellow Jackets (13-10, 3-8) were led by Marcus Georges-Hunt and Robert Carter Jr. with 11 and 10 points, respectively, the latter also pulling down a game-high 11 rebounds as they bowed for the second time in three tries.
