ATLANTA (AP) Zachery Peacock scored 18 points and Georgia Tech rallied from a 13-point deficit to beat Georgia 67-62 on Tuesday night, completing a sweep of its state rival in the two major sports.

On the heels of a 45-42 victory in football, the Yellow Jackets (9-5) fought back in a sloppy game that provided little hope either team is on the verge of turning around their disappointing seasons.

Peacock drove to the hoop to put Georgia Tech ahead for good, 62-60, with 1:23 remaining. Travis Leslie got open in the lane for Georgia, only to walk as he set up for a dunk.

One minute later, Georgia Tech’s Gani Lawal jammed home the rebound off Peacock’s missed jumper with 20.6 seconds to go. Lewis Clinch wrapped it up with two free throws.

Georgia (9-6) was led by Trey Thompkins with 20 points.
