Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Daniel Miller scored just nine points, but he drained the game-winning bucket in the final minute to lift the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to a 67-64 come-from-behind victory over the Illinois Fighting Illini as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge at McCamish Pavilion.

Robert Carter, Jr. tallied 21 points and nine rebounds for Georgia Tech (6-3), doing so on 6-of-10 from the field and 7-of-8 from the free-throw line. Marcus Georges-Hunt was also stellar with 20 points.
