ATLANTA (AP) -Anthony Morrow scored 21 points and Javaris Crittenton had 13 points and nine assists in Georgia Tech’s 97-46 victory over Winston-Salem State on Wednesday night.
The Yellow Jackets (11-3) never trailed after Morrow hit the first of seven 3-pointers for a 15-12 lead.
Darius Floyd led Winston-Salem State with 15 points. The Rams (1-17) have lost 14 straight games, all of them outside North Carolina.
Morrow, a reserve junior guard, was 7-for-11 on 3-point attempts.
Crittenton, a freshman point guard, led a fast-break offense that outscored Winston-Salem State 22-6.
The Jackets improved to 156-9 against non-conference opponents at Alexander Memorial Coliseum since 1981-82. After losing its Atlantic Coast Conference opener at Miami last month, Georgia Tech will visit No. 23 Clemson (15-0, 1-0) on Saturday.
Guard Lewis Clinch, who has fallen out of favor with Jackets coach Paul Hewitt despite entering with a 14.2 scoring average that’s second on the team, didn’t start for the second straight game. He played a career-low five minutes and finished with no points.
Winston-Salem State is playing a Division I schedule for the second season as members of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The Rams’ lone victory, 67-44 over Anderson, S.C., came in the opener. They visit MEAC opponent Morgan State on Friday night.
