ATLANTA (AP) — Charles Mitchell scored 19 points and Marcus Georges-Hunt added 14 points to help Georgia Tech beat Vanderbilt 65-60 on Saturday.

Damian Jones and Josh Henderson each finished with 12 points for Vanderbilt (7-3), which was coming off consecutive wins over Purdue and Western Kentucky.

Georgia Tech (8-2) has won five of six.

The Yellow Jackets made the right adjustments at halftime with the Commodores leading by eight, getting back on defense quicker and getting more production from their fast-break offense.

Georges-Hunt, Georgia Tech's leading scorer this season, was just 4 for 15 from the field, but in the final minute he hit a pair of free throws to make it 64-60 and grabbed a key defensive rebound when Wade Baldwin missed a 3 on Vanderbilt's ensuing possession.
