BOSTON (AP) -- Jeremis Smith had 20 points and grabbed ten
rebounds to lead Georgia Tech to an 86-78 victory over Boston
College as the two schools finished their regular season today.
Georgia Tech (14-16, 7-9) finished in seventh place in the
conference heading into next week's Atlantic Coast Conference
tournament in Charlotte, N.C.
Boston College (13-16, 4-12) lost its last six games and 12 of
its last 13 to drop into 11th (with a tiebreaker edge over North
Carolina State) in the 12-team league. Using a fullcourt press, Georgia Tech forced BC into 20 turnovers.
Georgia Tech took a nine-point lead at 32-23 on Lewis Clinch's
3-pointer with 4:31 left in the first half. But BC rallied and took
a short-lived lead with 49 seconds left in the half. BC led 47-46 when Zach Peacock, who scored 18 points for Tech, made a layup to start an 11-2 run. Anthony Morrow hit a 3-pointer with 9:22 left to give the Yellow Jackets their first double-digit lead of the game at 62-52.
