ATLANTA (AP) -Stanley Pringle scored 22 points, Danny Morrissey came up big from 3-point range and Penn State survived woeful free-throw shooting down the stretch to hold off Georgia Tech 85-83 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Wednesday night.
Penn State (7-1) squandered an early 10-point lead but looked to be in good shape when Morrissey connected on his third 3-pointer of the second half for an 81-74 lead with just over two minutes left.
But Georgia Tech (4-1) had a chance after Penn State missed three straight times on its first attempt in the 1-and-1. Two Pringle free throws with 14.2 seconds left made it 85-81, but Gani Lawal's dunk pulled the Yellow Jackets within range.
Jamelle Cornley missed two more free throws with 5.4 seconds remaining and Georgia Tech rebounded. Iman Shumpert got off a running 3-pointer, but the ball clanked off the rim as the horn sounded.
