GT scores 2nd straight upset, beats Notre Dame at buzzer

  Josh Okogie (5) played hero at the buzzer in Georgia Tech's upset win over Notre Dame.

The Yellow Jackets are starting to get pretty good at this upset thing.

Three days after smashing No. 6 Florida State at McCamish Pavilion by a score of 78-56, Georgia Tech continued to be a handful at home in ACC play. Josh Okogie got a transition layup to fall at the buzzer, as the Yellow Jackets knocked off No. 14 Notre Dame in a 62-60 game that was tight throughout.

Georgia Tech had a chance to regain the lead after going scoreless for nearly five minutes when Okogie had a pair of free throws with 35 seconds left. He missed both, setting up the Fighting Irish's chance to win it, but Matt Farrell's jumper was off the mark and the long rebound led to a fast break and the game-winner.

Georgia Tech moved to 13-8 overall and stands at a very respectable 5-4 in the brutal ACC.
