ATLANTA (AP) – Dustin Ware hit his seventh 3-pointer of the game with 15.3 seconds remaining, leading Georgia to a 73-72 win over Georgia Tech on Tuesday night.

Ware scored all 21 of his points from outside the arc, missing only twice from long range. With the game tied at 70, Gerald Robinson drove toward the lane, luring the defense away from Ware, then kicked it back out to the 5-foot-11 junior standing all alone at the stripe.

Even with Mfon Udofia desperately running at him, Ware swished the shot to give the Bulldogs (6-2) a 73-70 lead. Georgia Tech (4-4) passed up a chance at a tying 3, settling for Glen Rice’s uncontested layup with 6.8 seconds remaining.

Robinson missed a pair of free throws, giving the Yellow Jackets one last chance. But a long heave from the baseline was picked off in front of the Georgia basket by Travis Leslie, sealing the win for the road team.
