Atlanta, GA (AP) - Glen Rice Jr. scored 21 points, Iman Shumpert had
20 and Georgia Tech cruised to its biggest win ever in the Atlantic
Coast Conference, beating woeful Wake Forest 74-39 Wednesday night.
The Yellow Jackets (9-8, 2-2) didn't have a letdown coming off a
78-58 win over North Carolina. They led by as many as 42 and
eclipsed their previous mark for largest conference win, a 31-point
blowout of Florida State in 2002.
Of course, it helped to be playing Wake Forest (7-12, 0-4),
which lost for the eighth time in nine games and hasn't come close
in ACC play, losing by an average of 26 points.
Wake Forest made 14 of 54 shots (26 percent) from the field, 9
of 26 (35 percent) at the foul line and had no one in double
Georgia Tech hardly tried to run it up, clearing the bench and
scoring its final points with 5:27 remaining.
