“We’ve played pretty darned good,” coach Brian Gregory said. “We probably deserve a few more wins, and we haven’t gotten them. That’s what this league is all about right now.”
This one also wasn’t decided until the final minute. Georgia Tech had the ball down 67-63 after Bolden’s jumper in the lane with about 1:15 remaining and Okafor’s missed jumper at the other end.
Matt Jones’ steal near the sideline set up Cook’s two free throws with 33.5 seconds left. Tyus Jones then stole the ball from Demarco Cox and hit Winslow, who was fouled on the break and hit a free throw to put Duke up 70-63 with 23.7 seconds to play.
Cox had 10 points for Georgia Tech.
Okafor had a rough night against a talented Georgia Tech front line. He was just 5 of 12 and missed more shots than he made for just the third time this season, and first time since Nov. 22 against Stanford.
