  • Tech reached the century mark for the second time in three games. The Jackets have not scored 100 or more twice in a season since the 2006-07 season – in back-to-back games – 100-70 over Jackson State on Nov. 13 and 103-74 over Georgia State on Nov. 16.
  • Tech shot 56.3 percent in the game despite a 43.9-percent second half. The Jackets are shooting 52.2 percent for the season.

  • Tech’s 56-30 lead at halftime was its second-largest halftime advantage under head coach Brian Gregory.
  • The largest was 27 points, a 41-14 lead over Mississippi Valley State on Nov. 26, 2012.
  • Tech out-rebounded Green Bay 51-31, the second time in three games and the 74th time in 127 games under Brian Gregory that the Jackets have out-rebounded their opponent. Tech is 46-38 in those games.
  • The Jackets have a plus-12.7 rebounding advantage for the season. Tech had 23 assists on 42 made field goals tonight and has 68 assists on 117 made field goals for the season, 58.1 percent of its field goals made.

  • Georges-Hunt passed Iman Shumpert and Gani Lawal for 31st place on Tech’s all-time scoring list, and now has 1,174 career points. He needs 10 to reach Sammy Drummer, who holds 30th place with 1,184.
  • Charles Mitchell scored 15 points and reached in double digits for the fifth straight game dating back to last season. It was his 18th double-digit game in a Tech uniform, and the 34th of his career. He has made 21 of 30 shots from the floor (70 pct.) this season.

Heath also matched his career high with six field goals (in seven attempts) in the game, tying the six he scored at Northwestern last season. He added three assists and no turnovers in 20 minutes.
  • Ben Lammers’ eight points were a career high, eclipsing the six he scored against Cornell Friday night and against North Carolina last season. His nine rebounds also were a career high, more than doubling his previous best of the four against three different foes last season.
  • Nick Jacobs, who scored a career-high 23 points against Tennessee, cooled off to score 12 points with eight rebounds and four blocks. He went 5-for-7 from the floor and is shooting 64.5 percent for the season.
