    SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Georgia Tech center Daniel Miller dominated both offensively and defensively, scoring 12 points and blocking four shots as the Yellow Jackets defeated Savannah State 65-45 Saturday night.

    Brandon Reed added 16 points for Georgia Tech (6-4). The win is the Yellow Jackets' second straight, with both victories coming on the road against in-state opponents. Georgia Tech defeated rival Georgia 68-56 on Wednesday.

    The Yellow Jackets leveraged their size advantage inside to disrupt Savannah State's offense and force the Tigers (3-7) to become a jump-shooting team. Savannah State shot a season-low 28.3 percent from the floor (17 of 60) and went 4 of 20 from 3-point range.

    The Tigers' post combination of Rashad Hassan and Arnold Louis combined to score just 12 points against Georgia Tech's frontcourt of Miller, Kammeon Holsey and Nate Hicks.

    Hassan and Louis came in averaging 21 points between them.

    Hassan and guard Preston Blackmon led the Tigers with 10 points apiece.

    The Yellow Jackets broke the game open to start the second half. Four different players scored in a 9-0 run that pushed a 26-19 halftime lead to 16 points. Georgia Tech coasted from there, leading by as many as 25 points.

    Miller, a 6-foot-11 sophomore, made all six of his shots and also passed out three assists. The performance comes on the heels of Miller scoring 10 points -- on 5-of-5 shooting -- grabbing nine rebounds and blocking four shots against Georgia.

    Reed's 16 points matched a season high. The sophomore, a transfer from Arkansas State, made 6 of 7 shots, including two 3-pointers.
