ATLANTA (AP) B.J. Elder matched his career high with 25 points and three other players added 11 each as Georgia Tech remained unbeaten at home with an 88-66 win over Troy State Tuesday night.

Georgia Tech (5-2) opened the second half with a 12-2 run, breaking open a tight game with 3-point shots.

The Yellow Jackets, who had dropped two of their previous three games, nailed five threes in the first five minutes of the second half, and made 14-of-24 treys in the game.

Rob Lewin scored 22 for Troy State (6-2).

Tech led 44-40 at halftime, and freshman Chris Bosh set the tone coming out of the locker room with a 3-pointer just 29 seconds into the second half. Then a pair of treys by Elder, followed by one from Marvin Lewis, gave the Jackets their first double-digit lead at 56-42.

Georgia Tech led by as many as 24, that coming at 78-54 after a 3-pointer from Anthony McHenry.

Bosh failed to score in double figures for the first time, but Lewis, Isma’il Muhammad and Jarrett Jack scored 11 each.

Troy State (6-2), which had won four straight, including a win at Arkansas Dec. 3, led by as many as six in the first half and held a 34-29 lead before Tech closed the half with a 15-6 run.

The Trojans maintained their average of more than 30 3-point shots per game, but managed just six points over the first seven minutes after intermission.
