Robert Carter Jr. scored 16 points, Daniel Miller and Trae Golden added 14 points and Georgia Tech beat Virginia Tech 62-51 Saturday in the regular season finale for both teams.

The Yellow Jackets (15-16, 6-12 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won two straight after ending a four-game skid with an upset victory at No. 7 Syracuse on Tuesday.

Joey van Zegeren finished with a career-high 21 points and seven rebounds for Virginia Tech (9-12, 2-16), which has dropped six in a row and 16 of 17.

Coming off the 67-62 win over Syracuse — the most illustrious victory in coach Brian Gregory's three-year tenure — Georgia Tech never trailed after Golden's 3-pointer made it 19-18 with 3:40 left in the first half.

Even so, the Jackets began the day in 13th in the 15-team ACC and are likely to miss the NCAA tournament and the NIT for the fourth straight year.
