Some Saturday afternoon college basketball!

How about some Saturday afternoon college basketball scores!  Beginning in the ACC, let’s start with Georgia Tech!Cool  The Jackets won another ACC road game defeating Wake Forest in a thriller, 57 – 56.  Freshman center/forward Marcus Georges-Hunt lead GT with 16 points and center Daniel Miller added 13 points, 6 assists and 5 blocked shots.  Tough day for Kammeron Holsey as he missed a number of shots as well as put back opportunities, very uncharacteristic.  Jackets are now 5 – 8 in ACC play.  One glaring problem for this young Georgia Tech team is free throw shooting.  They are at the bottom of the ACC in free throw shooting with not one player shooting over 70%.  Need to work on that!  Still, nice road win for GT in the ACC.

North Carolina rebounded nicely from their loss to Duke earlier this week, taking care of Virginia, 93 – 81.  Tyler Zeller had his jersey retired.  FSU narrowly avoided losing to BC at home, prevailing 69 – 66.  It was reunion weekend in Tallahassee so it would not have been good for the Noles to drop this one.

Over in the SEC, Kentucky (currently at #25 but likely to drop out of this Monday’s polls) suffered a bad loss playing in their first game without the services of injured forward Nerlens Noel, as they were routed on the road at Tennessee, 88 – 58.  #7 Florida bounced back nicely from their loss last week with a thumping of Auburn 83 – 52.

2 Duke is in action now on ESPN on the road at Maryland.
