SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Garrick Sherman scored 21 points and Eric Atkins added 17, including a key 3-pointer, to lead Notre Dame to a 65-62 victory over Georgia Tech on Wednesday night.

Georgia Tech cut a nine-point Notre Dame lead to 56-55 when Kammeon Holsey scored on a rebound after the Yellow Jackets (13-15, 4-11 Atlantic Coast Conference) forced a shot-clock violation. But the Irish answered with a 7-1 run as Sherman and Pat Connaughton scored inside and Atkins hit a 3-pointer to make it 63-56.

Robert Carter Jr., who led Georgia Tech with 19 points, hit consecutive 3s to cut the lead to 63-62. After Connaughton hit a pair of free throws, Marcus Georges-Hunt and Carter missed 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds as the Irish held on.

The Irish (15-14, 6-10) averted falling below .500 for the first time this late in a season since finishing 14-16 during the 1998-99 season
