Tech Falls 60-43 to UGA

The Jackets simply couldn’t put the ball in the basket.

Georgia Tech lost 60-43 to the Georgia Bulldogs Tuesday night in McCamish Pavilion.

Tech played arguably its worst half of the season in the first 20 minutes. The Jackets shot 7-26 (26.9%) from the field and committed 10 turnovers. Tech did not manage a field goal in the final 6:09.

Georgia fared only slightly better, shooting 11-39 (31.4%) and committing eight turnovers, but the Bulldogs went into the locker room with a 27-18 lead.

The second half started a little more promising, with the Jackets hitting three of their first four field goals and quickly cutting the lead to six. But Georgia just as quickly pushed the lead back to double-digits and kept Tech at arm’s length for the remainder of the game.

Ben Lammers finished as the Yellow Jackets’ leading scorer with 10 points, while Yante Maten paced the Dawgs with 16 points and JJ Frazier added 15.

It was simply an all-around miserable game for the Yellow Jackets. Tech will have problems scoring all year, but the offensive performance against the Bulldogs was particularly abysmal.

But if there is a silver lining, the only sport anyone cares about is football, as we have so constantly been reminded. So, 28-27.
