Frazier scores 35 points as Georgia tops Georgia Tech, 75-61
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - J.J. Frazier scored a season-high 35 points while sinking six 3-pointers, and Georgia beat Georgia Tech 75-61 on Saturday to end a streak of four straight losses in the state rivalry.
Frazier, a junior guard, made six of nine 3s and then iced Georgia's lead by making each of his eight free throws in the final 90 seconds. Frazier limped off the court with an apparent ankle injury with only 12 seconds remaining.
Yante Maten added 17 points for Georgia (5-3).
The loss to Georgia was the first for the Yellow Jackets (7-3) under fifth-year coach Brian Gregory.
Tadric Jackson had 14 points for Georgia Tech, which led 34-33 at halftime but fell behind when Frazier hit a 3-pointer as part of the Bulldogs' 9-0 run to open the second half.
