Georgia Tech never trails in win over No. 21 Mississippi St.


Miles Kelly scored a game-high 22 points and added 12 rebounds to help lead Georgia Tech to a 67-59 upset win over visiting No. 21 Mississippi State on Tuesday in Atlanta.

Kyle Sturdivant added 12 points for Georgia Tech (3-2). Naithan George also had 11 points for the Yellow Jackets in the inaugural ACC/SEC Challenge.

Mississippi State (6-1) was paced by Josh Hubbard, who had 17 points. Dashawn Davis scored 12 points for the Bulldogs, who struggled to find a rhythm on offense, connecting on just 20 of their 65 shots from the field (30.8 percent) and just seven of their 30 3-point tries (23.3 percent).

D.J. Jeffries added 10 points for the Bulldogs, while Jimmy Bell Jr. grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds.

The Yellow Jackets never trailed as first-year head coach Damon Stoudamire posted the first power-conference win of his Georgia Tech tenure.

A Hubbard basket knotted the score at 13 with 11:03 remaining in the first half, the last time Mississippi State was level. Georgia Tech followed with an 11-2 run that was punctuated with a Kelly 3-pointer, one of his four in the game.

Georgia Tech led by as many as 16 in the second half before a late Mississippi State run cut the deficit to eight on a pair of free throws from Davis with 2:44 remaining.

Mississippi State missed its next four shots as the Yellow Jackets pulled away at the foul line.

The double-double for Kelly, a junior, was the first of his career. It was his third game this season scoring at least 20 points.

Georgia Tech held a 39-26 lead at halftime, largely due to the Yellow Jackets' defense holding Mississippi State to 10-of-33 shooting (30.3 percent) from the field and 2-of-10 success from 3-point range. Meanwhile, Georgia Tech hit half of its 28 field-goal attempts, and Kelly had 14 first-half points.

Tuesday was the first of two straight home games against ranked teams for Georgia Tech, who face No.7 Duke on Saturday. The Bulldogs host Southern University on Sunday.
