Dane Goodwin led the way with a double-double. He scored a team high 19 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, which was a career high for the graduate senior.

Freshman JJ Starling added 16 points. Nate Laszewski and Cormac Ryan also scored in double figures. Laszewski’s two free throws in overtime ended up being the game winners, as Georgia Tech’s Ja’von Franklin couldn’t hit the shot at the buzzer.
