Georgia Tech Basketball: Jackets Start Fast, Outlast Boston College to Win 68-60

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

It was a tale of two halves in this game, but the good guys would emerge victorious.



Trae Golden didn't play very well during some big games early this season. That's all far behind him now though, it seems. Golden matched a season high and scored 24 against Boston College Tuesday, including 9 points in the final 2:18 after the Eagles had cut a 19-point Yellow Jackets lead down to a single point. He's now gone for 20 or more in three of his last four, and is becoming a major offensive threat for Tech. Never trailing in the game, Georgia Tech pulled away late and won 68-60.

It was an interesting night for the Jackets, who in the first half matched their offensive output from the previous game against Miami with 42 points on 17-23 (74%) shooting, including a 14-15 start. The second half was not as prosperous, but Tech was able to hold off Boston College for the win. Kammeon Holsey added 13 points and Chris Bolden had a good night with 11. Daniel Miller had a tough night with 4 points and 3 rebounds, and Marcus Georges-Hunt was solid with 9 points in 29 minutes. Jason Morris would add 2 points and 3 rebounds in 9 minutes in his return from a concussion.

The win stops the Jackets' 2-game skid and gives them an 11-8 (2-4) record as they head to NC State this weekend. The Wolfpack have a similar record at 12-7 (2-4), but have not been particularly tough at home lately, losing three of their last four in Raleigh.

Inspired by the Jackets' win tonight? Did the second half worry you? Think Tech can carry this momentum forward?
