ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Forward Jason Collier scored 22 points to lead Georgia Tech to an 82-65 victory over Washington Friday to advance to the title game of the Great Alaska Shootout.
Collier, a 7-foot senior, had the advantage of height, speed and agility in pushing past Washington (2-1). He had 10 rebounds and one assist, seldom letting up during 34 minutes of playing time for the Yellow Jackets.
Six-foot-11 center Alvin Jones contributed 14 points and eight rebounds for Georgia Tech (3-0).
The Huskies averaged just 35 percent shooting in the first half, despite managing to sink an impressive 57 percent of their 3-pointers. But they went cold midway through the half when Tech went on a 22-5 run on strong inside play by Collier, Jones and John Babul.
