Georges-Hunt lifts Georgia Tech over Notre Dame, 63-62
ATLANTA (AP) – Marcus Georges-Hunt scored on a short jumper with 2 seconds remaining, lifting Georgia Tech to a 63-62 win over No. 19 Notre Dame on Saturday night.
Georgia Tech (15-12, 5-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) has won back-to-back ACC games for the first time since late in the 2013-14 season.
Zach Auguste and V.J. Beachem each had 13 points for Notre Dame (18-8, 9-5), which had won three straight.
Georgia Tech led for most of the first 30 minutes but needed a late comeback after Notre Dame went ahead 60-54.
Georges-Hunt, who had 19 points, drove and made a spin move past Steve Vasturia before stopping near the basket and lofting up the game-winner. Notre Dame didn’t have enough time to get off a shot, and Georges-Hunt was mobbed by teammates near midcourt.
