Georgia Tech wrapped up a disappointing 2014-15 regular season Tuesday night with a loss to No. 15 North Carolina at home.
The 49-81 loss gives the Yellow Jackets a record of 12-18, and 3-15 in Atlantic Coast Conference play before entering the conference tournament.
Turnovers, sloppy passes, and missed shots were the story of the game for Georgia Tech, while an increasingly efficient North Carolina picks up a bit more momentum entering the ACC tournament.
Tech had 18 turnovers in the game. 12 of the Tar Heels first 18 points were from turnovers from the Yellow Jackets.
Marcus Georges-Hunt injured his foot early in the game and didn’t return, breaking an 11 game double-digit point streak.
Forward Charles Mitchell led the Jackets with 16 points and eight rebounds on the night. He was the game’s leading scorer. Center Demarco Cox had a 14 point performance, and also had eight rebounds for Tech.
Carolina’s Joel Berry had a 15 point night, followed by guard Justin Jackson, who had 13 points for the Tar Heels.
Tuesday night’s loss puts Tech coach Brian Gregory in danger of finishing with a losing record in his third season out of four total since coming to Atlanta.
Georgia Tech waits its ACC Tournament seeding.
