Preview | Box Score | Recap

ATLANTA (AP)—Greivis Vasquez scored 19 points and Maryland held off Georgia Tech at the buzzer for its eighth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets, 57-56 on Sunday night.

Georgia Tech had two chances at the win after Eric Hayes missed the first free throw of a 1-and-1 with 16.7 seconds left. Georgia Tech’s Lewis Clinch missed on a drive in the lane, but teammate Iman Shumpert chased down the long rebound in the corner and managed to get off a 3-pointer. It was a little long, bouncing high off the rim as the horn sounded.

Maryland (15-8, 4-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) swept the season series and extended its domination of the Yellow Jackets (10-12, 1-8), who haven’t beaten the Terrapins since the 2003-04 season. Georgia Tech committed 24 turnovers.

Shumpert scored 13 points for the Yellow Jackets, while Hayes added 15 points for Maryland.
