ATLANTA (AP) — Glen Rice Jr. scored three points in the final minute, Brandon Reed hit a pair of free throws in the closing seconds and Georgia Tech snapped a six-game losing streak with a 51-47 victory over Boston College on Saturday.
In a matchup of two struggling teams, Rice finished with 11 points and Kammeon Holsey and Daniel Miller each added 10 for the Yellow Jackets (9-14, 2-7 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Matt Humphrey scored 15 points and Lonnie Jackson had 10 for BC (7-16, 2-7), which has dropped six straight and nine of 11.
The Yellow Jackets never trailed after Holsey’s inside runner made it 46-44 with 2:55 remaining, but BC pulled within one at 48-47 on Jackson’s two free throws with 16.4 seconds to go.
Rice put back his own missed runner to make it 48-45 with 48.9 seconds left and added a free throw with three-tenths of a second remaining.
