Tonight’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge game between Georgia Tech and Northwestern came down to a big-time buzzer beater by GT’s Tadric Jackson.
With about four seconds left, down 51-50, Tech’s Jose Alvarado found Jackson on the wing, coming around Brandon Alston.
Jackson blew by Northwestern defender Aaron Falzon and exploded to the rim for a game-winning, buzzer-beating layup.
With the score, Georgia Tech scored a nice 52-51 win at home.
