ATLANTA (AP) — Lotta-Maj Lahtinen scored 17 points with seven assists and seven rebounds and No. 17 Georgia Tech beat Belmont 58-45.

After Belmont built a 15-11 lead after the first quarter, Georgia Tech clamped down on the defensive and limited the Bruins to 2-for-13 shooting and forced five turnovers holding Belmont to four points. The Bruins regrouped and stayed within striking distance, and Jamilyn Kinney’s 3-pointer with 5:20 remaining reduced Belmont’s deficit to 45-43.

But Lahtinen scored six of the Yellow Jackets’ 13 points down the stretch and Lorela Cubaj made 3 of 4 fouls shots and Belmont went cold and failed to score in the last four minutes.
