CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Zachery Peacock made the go-ahead shot with 25.7 seconds left to rescue No. 20 Georgia Tech, which blew a 20-point first-half lead before holding on to beat No. 12 North Carolina 73-71 on Saturday.
Iman Shumpert finished with a career-high 30 points to lead the Yellow Jackets (13-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who figured out a way to pull out a win after falling behind in the wild final minutes.
Peacock managed just six points, but his shot in the lane that rolled around the rim before dropping through ended up being the biggest play of the game.
Will Graves had 22 of his career-high 24 points in the second half to lead the Tar Heels (12-6, 1-2), but he missed a desperation 3-pointer at the final buzzer for the win.
