Coral Gables, FL (Sports Network) - The celebration is on hold thanks to
Georgia Tech's Marcus Georges-Hunt.
A distributor for most of the game, Georges-Hunt penetrated to the basket,
lofted a floater that hit the back rim, but tipped in his own miss at the
buzzer, as the Yellow Jackets stunned No. 6 Miami-Floria, 71-69.
Georges-Hunt's second field goal of the game denied Miami its first outright
ACC championship, at least for now. The Hurricanes (23-6, 14-3) get another
chance to win the league crown on Saturday against Clemson. Miami will enter
that contest losers in three of its last four games.
Chris Bolden scored a career-high 21 points, Daniel Miller battled the
Hurricanes big men and held his own with 17 points and five rebounds, while
Robert Carter added 12 points. Georges-Hunt dished out six assists and grabbed
six boards, but it was his second field goal of the game that gave the Yellow
Jackets (16-13, 6-11) their first win over a top-25 opponent under head coach
