Saturday ACC Hoops

GEORGIA TECH 69, WAKE FOREST 62 -- Jason Morris scored a career-high 22 points and made five of Georgia Tech's season-high 11 3-pointers in Saturday's win over Wake Forest in the regular season finale for both teams.

Leave it to first-year Tech head coach Brian Gregory to look beyond obvious numbers for deeper meaning. In a season that has at times been painful for the Yellow Jackets (11-19, 4-12 ACC), the coach was most pleased by the way Morris and the Jackets attacked the glass and moved the ball.

He has been preaching for months that good things - and open shots - will come to those who work hard and do the right things.

MIAMI 77, BOSTON COLLEGE 56 -- Kenny Kadji and Durand Scott scored 14 points each to lead Miami past Boston College.

The Hurricanes broke open a close game with a 16-1 run during a 6:13 stretch midway through the first half. Malcolm Grant keyed Miami's surge with consecutive 3-pointers. Scott's 3-pointer with 4:55 remaining capped the run and gave Miami a 36-19 lead.

Grant finished with 12 points for the Hurricanes (18-11, 9-7 ACC).
