#BestofGT (January 4, 2020) – Jose Alvarado scored 25 points and Moses Wright added 22 as Georgia Tech used stifling defense and a dominant first half to upend North Carolina, 96-83, in its first victory at the Dean Smith Center since 2010. Tech started the game with a 19-2 run and didn’t allow a North Carolina field goal for the first 13:10 of the game as the Jackets’ defense held the Tar Heels to an 0-for-15 start from the field.
