ATLANTA (AP) - Glen Rice Jr. scored three points in the final minute, Brandon Reed hit a pair of free throws in the closing seconds and Georgia Tech snapped a six-game losing streak with a 51-47 victory over Boston College on Saturday.

In a matchup of two struggling teams, Rice finished with 11 points and Kammeon Holsey and Daniel Miller each added 10 for the Yellow Jackets (9-14, 2-7 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Matt Humphrey scored 15 points and Lonnie Jackson had 10 for BC (7-16, 2-7), who have dropped six straight and nine of 11.
