Saturday, January 31, 2009. (AP) -- Iman Shumpert hit a pull-up jumper with one second remaining to lift Georgia Tech to its first Atlantic Coast Conference win, a 76-74 upset of No. 6 Wake Forest on Saturday.

Wake Forest committed two turnovers in the final 35 seconds and lost to the ACC's last-place team only three days after beating top-ranked Duke.

Georgia Tech senior Alade Aminu had 10 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks while younger brother Al-Farouq Aminu led Wake Forest with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Gani Lawal had 25 points for the Yellow Jackets (10-10, 1-6), who ended a five-game losing streak.

Jeff Teague had 16 points for Wake Forest (17-2, 4-2).

It was only the second matchup of brothers on opposing teams in ACC history. On Jan. 3, 1969, Wake Forest's Jerry Montgomery faced his brother Roger of Maryland.
