INDIVIDUAL NOTES

Josh Heath started tonight in place of Travis Jorgenson, who was held out as a precaution with soreness in his surgically repaired right knee. It was Heath’s fifth career collegiate start (started the last four games of the 2013-14 season at South Florida). He finished with seven points, seven assists and no turnovers in 28 minutes.

Charles Mitchell notched the sixth double-double of his career (12 points, 14 rebounds), and his first in a Georgia Tech uniform. It also was the 13th double-digit rebound game of his career, and the 17th double-figure scoring game of his career.

Demarco Cox reached double figures for the second straight game in a Georgia Tech uniform and for the sixth time in his career.
