Georgia Tech was entirely outclassed Saturday, losing 76-56 to Virginia Tech at McCamish Pavilion.

Georgia Tech finished the game shooting 36.4 percent from the field, no match for the Hokies’ 52.8 percent.

Georgia Tech (11-16 overall, 4-10 ACC) has now lost nine of its past 10 games. Virginia Tech (19-8, 8-6) has won four in a row in the series and is 14-5 against the Jackets in ACC play.
