ATLANTA (AP) - Freshman Marcus Georges-Hunt scored a career-high 18 points and Georgia Tech never trailed while beating Georgia 62-54 on Tuesday night.

Georgia Tech (5-2) has won back-to-back games in the state rivalry for the first time since three straight wins from 1992-94. The wins have come in the Yellow Jackets' first two seasons with coach Brian Gregory.

Mfon Udofia added 12 points for Georgia Tech, including a 3-point play with about 1 minute remaining after Georgia cut the Yellow Jackets' lead to 55-50.

Georgia Tech fans chanted "ACC! ACC!" in the final minute, mocking Georgia fans' "SEC! SEC!" chant in the Bulldogs' football win over the Yellow Jackets two weeks ago.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led Georgia (2-6) with 16 points. The Bulldogs had no other scorer in double figures and made only 31.6% of their shots (18 of 57) from the field.
