Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Marcus Georges-Hunt's four-point play in the final second propelled the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to a thrilling 74-71 victory over the Boston College Eagles in ACC action at McCamish Pavilion.

Daniel Miller scored 18 points and Georges-Hunt and Kammeon Holsey each added 15 for Georgia Tech (13-12, 4-8 ACC), which had lost four of its previous five. Robert Carter Jr. chipped in 10 points.

Olivier Hanlan finished with a game-high 21 points for Boston College (6-18, 2-9), which has lost four straight. Ryan Anderson tacked on 13 points and Joe Rahon tallied 11.
