WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Marcus Georges-Hunt scored a career-high 23 points and Georgia Tech held on to beat Wake Forest 79-70 on Saturday.

Daniel Miller added 16 points for the Yellow Jackets (12-10, 3-6 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They shot 49 percent, used an impressive run that bridged the halves and held off the Demon Deacons' late surge to avoid their third loss to a North Carolina-based ACC school in a seven-day span.

Travis McKie scored a career-high 26 points for Wake Forest (14-8, 4-5), and his 3-pointer with 3:10 left made it 69-64.

But he missed one two possessions later. Georges-Hunt followed with a layup that made it a seven-point game with 1½ minutes left, Chris Bolden intercepted Devin Thomas' inbounds pass and Kammeon Holsey hit two free throws to push the Yellow Jackets' lead to 73-64.
