The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (21-16) gets embarrassed in a 32 point blowout 88-56 but TCU Horned Frogs (24-15).

Georgia Tech started out flat not missing their first eight shots. Meanwhile, their defense squandered a 16-1 lead in the first 10 minutes of the game.

Trying to find their rhythm, coach Josh Pastner quickly went to his bench for a spark. After center Ben Lammers collected his second foul, Georgia Tech went on a 7-0 run.

Reserve guard Tadric Jackson led the Rambling Wreck with 10 points and gave the Yellow Jackets plenty of energy.

Second half, Tech opened up hitting their first three 3-pointers. Yet, TCU continued to penetrate and score in the paint without any resistance from Lammers and company.

The lead ballooned to 17 in the second half but Jackson kept them close scoring seven points in the first eight minutes.

Lammers had his worst game of the season from the field going 1-10 with eight points (6-6 from free throw line). Jackson lead the team in scoring with 19 points.

In spite of the loss the Yellow Jackets can hang their heads up high.
