Georgia upsets Georgia Tech

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Trey Thompkins scored 20 points, Ricky McPhee

hit two key baskets near the end and Georgia pulled off its first

big win for new coach Mark Fox, knocking off No. 20 Georgia Tech

73-66 on Tuesday night.

Georgia, a team that had lost at home to Wofford and was coming

off a 28-point blowout at Missouri last weekend, defeated a team

with one of the most touted freshman classes in the country. It was

a loss sure to turn up the heat on Yellow Jackets coach Paul

Hewitt, who looked up at the scoreboard in disbelief as the

Bulldogs (8-5) pulled away.

Georgia Tech (11-3) was trying to match its victory total from

last season. Instead, the Yellow Jackets failed to break a long

drought at Stegeman Coliseum, where they haven't won since Nov. 26,

1976.
