RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Matt Causey had 18 points while Anthony Morrow went 4-for-4 at the line in the final 19 seconds to help Georgia Tech hold off North Carolina State 77-74 on Wednesday.

D’Andre Bell and Gani Lawal each added 13 points for the Yellow Jackets (9-9, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won in Raleigh for the first time in a dozen years thanks to a steady performance in the final three minutes.

Courtney Fells finished with a career-high 23 points to lead the Wolfpack (12-6, 1-3), who led by five points midway through the second half before the Yellow Jackets ran off 10 straight points to retake momentum. N.C. State came up with several clutch baskets to hang in, but ultimately the Wolfpack couldn’t get any needed stops down the stretch.

Georgia Tech also knocked down its last six free throws in the final 41 seconds to seal it, the last two coming from Morrow to make it 77-74 with 8.8 seconds left. That gave the Wolfpack a final chance to tie it, but Javi Gonzalez airballed a 3-pointer from the right side that was rebounded by Georgia Tech as the horn sounded.
