ATLANTA -- Kenny Anderson calls teams like Morgan State cupcakes -- sweet little bites meant to be devoured by meat-eaters like No. 14-ranked Georgia Tech.
But the Yellow Jackets learned last night at Alexander Memorial Coliseum that even cupcakes can be hard to swallow.
Morgan State jumped to an 18-7 lead six minutes into the game before the Yellow Jackets turned things around and won, 87-65. Malcolm Mackey led the Yellow Jackets with 33 points.
"They gave us fits," Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins said. "We obviously weren't ready in the beginning."
Anderson, the target of Morgan State's box-and-one defense, had only seven points, the second-lowest output of his collegiate career, but most of his 13 assists went to Mackey and center Matt Geiger, who added 21 points.
