ATLANTA (AP) — Jason Morris scored a career-high 22 points, and Georgia Tech made a season-high 11 3-point shots Saturday on the way to a 69-62 win over Wake Forest in the regular season finale for both teams.

The Yellow Jackets (11-19, 4-12 Atlantic Coast Conference) entered the game making just 22.4 percent of their 3-pointers in Philips Arena — their home court while Georgia Tech's on-campus arena is being renovated.

The Yellow Jackets made 8-of-17 from beyond the arc on their way to a 32-28 halftime lead. But after Wake Forest (13-17, 4-12) took the lead a couple times in the second half, Morris pushed Georgia Tech ahead 49-48 on a 3-pointer with 9:13 left in the game.

Georgia Tech, which never trailed again, made 11-of-26 3-pointers overall.

C.J. Harris led the Demon Deacons with 17 points, and Travis McKie added 16.

Mfon Udofia scored 15 points for the Yellow Jackets.
