    Williams went 9 of 10 from the free-throw line, dished out five assists and had four steals. Alex Montgomery added 15 points and five rebounds for Georgia Tech (10-2).

    The Mavericks (4-6) cut the lead to 58-54 with 1:17 remaining, but the Jackets sealed the win at the line, making 5 of 6 of their foul shots in the final minute.
