ATLANTA (AP) -- Brandon Reed scored 14 points, Robert Carter Jr. added 13 with 11 rebounds, and Mfon Udofia pitched in 12 points on 3-point shots Monday evening to lead Georgia Tech over overmatched Alabama State 75-41.
The Yellow Jackets (7-2) had no trouble with the Rebels (1-9) while moving to 5-0 in their new arena.
Georgia Tech led 40-20 at halftime and by as many as 35 points in the second half, when coach Brian Gregory used every player available. That included highly touted freshman point guard Solomon Poole, who joined the team Saturday fresh out of high school.
One of the biggest cheers in McCamish Pavilion came with 4:20 left when freshman walk-on guard Brooks Doyle's 3-pointer gave Georgia Tech a 72-39 lead.
Bobby Brown and Jamel Waters each scored seven points to lead the Rebels, who made just 15 of 60 shots (25 percent) and were outrebounded 51-30.
