ATLANTA (AP) — Robert Carter Jr. had 19 points and 10 rebounds and Georgia Tech beat Maryland 78-68 on Wednesday night, extending the Terrapins’ road struggles.
Carter, a freshman, posted his fourth double-double of the season and Brandon Reed had 17 points for Georgia Tech (15-12, 5-10 Atlantic Coast Conference). Daniel Miller had 16 points and nine rebounds while making each of his 12 free throws.
The loss left Maryland 1-6 in road ACC games. Maryland (19-9, 7-8) is 15-2 at home, but its latest road loss was a damaging blow to its NCAA tournament hopes.
Dez Wells led Maryland with 15 points. Alex Len had 13 points and nine rebounds. Seth Allen had 12 points.
The Terrapins play two of their last three regular-season games on the road, starting with Saturday’s visit to Wake Forest.
