VIDEO: Tech Downs Clemson to Start Home Stretch

The Yellow Jackets got their 8th ACC win of the season and improved their overall record to 14-14 with a 68-59 victory over Clemson.

#BestofGT (February 25, 2020) – Jose Alvarado and Michael Devoe combined to score 33 of Georgia Tech’s 68 points and the Yellow Jackets pulled away for their fifth straight home win, a 68-59 triumph over visiting Clemson at McCamish Pavilion. Alvarado overcame an injury that forced him to momentarily leave the court midway through the first half to score 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting (3-of-5 from 3-point range). Devoe scored 14 points to go along with six rebounds and a game- and career-high eight assists. Moses Wright also reached double figures for the Yellow Jackets with 10 points. The Jackets closed the first half with a 9-2 run to take a 34-29 halftime lead and never trailed after the break.
