BAYAMON, Puerto Rico (AP) _ Matt Harpring had 18 points as Georgia Tech upset No. 19 Louisville 73-69 Saturday in the championship of the Puerto Rico Shootout.

Freshman Dion Glover also had 18 points and Michael Maddox had 16 to lead Tech (4-0). Both were selected to the all-tournament team, and Harpring was picked as the tournament’s most valuable player.
