WATCH: GT's Jackson nails buzzer-beater to top Northwestern

Georgia Tech beat Northwestern 52-51 on Tuesday night in a back-and-forth slugfest. And the Yellow Jackets clinched the victory thanks to some late-game heroics from Tadric Jackson.

Watch as Jackson gets the ball and drives for a lefty layup as time expires. The kiss off the glass was smooth:

Jackson finished with 10 points and seven rebounds on the evening. Georgia Tech improved to 4-1 with the win while Northwestern fell to 4-3 – a rough start for a team fresh off its first NCAA tournament appearance.
