ATLANTA (AP) -Gani Lawal scored 21 points, including a crucial shot with just over a minute remaining, and No. 20 Georgia Tech bounced back from a dismal loss with a 71-67 upset of fifth-ranked Duke on Saturday.
Lawal worked the boards hard, putting back two straight misses during one pivotal stretch, and Georgia Tech (12-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) went ahead for good on yet another hustle play. Zachery Peacock grabbed an airball under the basket and flipped in a shot that put Georgia Tech ahead 62-60 with 1:52 remaining.
After Kyle Singler missed again for Duke (13-2, 1-1) on a 3-pointer - the junior forward was 2-of-13 from the field - Lawal knocked down an awkward shot from about 10 feet to give the Yellow Jackets some breathing room.
