ATLANTA (AP) -- Ra'Sean Dickey scored a season-high 21 points, Javaris Crittenton made two key baskets down the stretch and Georgia Tech held on for a rare win over Number 11 Duke Wednesday night, beating the Blue Devils 74-to-63.
Duke (13-3, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) lost its second straight, failing to bounce back from a shocking home loss to Virginia Tech. The Blue Devils are off to their worst start in the ACC since 1996.
That same season was also the last time Georgia Tech (12-4, 1-2 ACC) had defeated the Blue Devils at Alexander Memorial Coliseum in Atlanta. Duke won 21 of 22 over its conference rival, including five straight, before a loss that sent the Georgia Tech student body charging onto the court.
Jon Scheyer led Duke with 16 points.
