Georgia Tech 89, Georgia 65
ATLANTA (AP) _ Duane Ferrell and Bruce Dalrymple keyed a 9-0 spurt that shut the door on a Georgia comeback attempt as fifth-ranked Georgia Tech drilled the Bulldogs 89-65 in college basketball Saturday night.
Ferrell started the run with a three-point play after the Bulldogs had sliced a 16-point lead to 69-61 with just under six minutes remaining.
Dalrymple then came back with a layup on a goaltending against the Bulldogs and followed that with a pair of free throws before Mark Price drilled a 15- footer to put the Yellow Jackets in front 78-61 with four minutes to play.
The victory brought an end to Georgia’s seven-game winning streak in the series and lifted Tech’s record to 4-1. Georgia fell to 2-2 before a sellout crowd of 16,615 in the Omni, the largest crowd ever to watch a Tech-Georgia basketball game. Georgia held a 21-18 lead with 13:18 left in the opening half before Dalrymple scored 10 consecutive points - one a layup on a blind over-the-shoulder assist from Price - to give Tech a 28-21 lead, one it never relinquished.
Freshman Tom Hammonds led Tech in scoring with 20 points, Dalrymple had 18, Ferrell 15, John Salley 12 and Price 10.
Joe Ward paced the Bulldogs with 20 points, David Dunn had 13 and Horace McMillan 10.
