#BestofGT (February 29, 2020) – Georgia Tech let a 20-point lead evaporate, but used an 8-0 run over the final 4:08 of the game to pull out its sixth-straight home win, a 63-57 triumph over Miami (Fla.) at McCamish Pavilion. With its fourth win in its last five games overall, Georgia Tech moved over .500 at 15-14 on the season and pulled even at 9-9 in Atlantic Coast Conference play.
