ATLANTA -- Greivis Vasquez scored 19 points and Maryland held off Georgia Tech at the buzzer for its eighth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets, 57-56 on Sunday night.
Georgia Tech had two chances at the win after Eric Hayes missed the first free throw of a 1-and-1 with 16.7 seconds left. Georgia Tech's Lewis Clinch missed on a drive in the lane, but teammate Iman Shumpert chased down the long rebound in the corner and managed to get off a 3-pointer. It was a little long, bouncing high off the rim as the horn sounded.
Maryland (15-8, 4-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) swept the season series and extended its domination of the Yellow Jackets (10-12, 1-8), who haven't beaten the Terrapins since the 2003-04 season. Georgia Tech committed 24 turnovers.
Shumpert scored 13 points for the Yellow Jackets, while Hayes added 15 points for Maryland.
The Terps won the season's first matchup with Georgia Tech, 68-61, benefiting from a season-high 28 turnovers by the Yellow Jackets. Maryland won that game despite shooting only 32 percent from field, including 5 of 26 from 3-point range, and getting dominated on the boards, 49-39.
