Tadric Jackson scored a game and career-high 20 points to lead Georgia Tech past Southern University 77-62. Ben Lammers had a career-high nine blocked shots in the win and scored 13 points and grabbed 15 rebounds.
Yellow Jackets Head Coach Josh Pastner in his opening statement said, “Good win for the Jackets. Lot of good stuff but …Tonight, in my time, I haven’t seen a guy save us in terms of the 50/50 ball wins and the multiple effort plays that Ben Lammers did. Really proud of Ben on his effort plays and just saving us in many ways.
Southern Head Coach Romar Banks said, “They are a capable ball club, and I think [Tadric] Jackson makes them a lot better. His 20 points tonight were the difference. His energy, his know-how and his experience ignited them when he came into the game.”
