Ga. Tech tops Wake Forest, 101-91 Anderson, Domalik lead Yellow Jackets Nation

January 07, 1991

ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins credited reserve guard Brian Domalik with boosting his team to a 101-91 victory over Atlantic Coast Conference rival Wake Forest.

Kenny Anderson scored 32 points, including 10 in 43 seconds midway through the second half, as the 24th-ranked Yellow Jackets (6-3, 1-1) won their sixth straight.

Domalik made three three-pointers late in the game, his only points.

"The little guy [Domalik] was sensational," Cremins said. "He's a good shooter, and he had missed a couple of open ones, but he saved us. The little guy came through when we needed him most."

Dave Odom, coach of Wake Forest (6-3, 1-0), agreed.

"Brian Domalik's three three-pointers were certainly keys," Odom said. "It's really difficult to get down by as many 18 points and come back against a team like Georgia Tech. Shutting them down totally with a guy like Kenny Anderson is very, very difficult."

Anderson made a three-pointer with 12 minutes, 2 seconds remaining for a 67-56 lead, then stole the ball and made a three-point play. After Wake Forest coach David Odom was assessed a technical foul, Anderson made both free throws for a 16-point lead.

Wake Forest pulled within eight twice in the last seven minutes, but Domalik came on strong.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Lee Mayberry started a late nine-point run with a dunk on an alley-oop pass, and Ron Huery scored a season-high 22, as Arkansas (13-1, 2-0) beat Houston (9-3, 1-1) in the Southwest Conference.

The Cougars, whose last lead was 6-4, stayed close until the late spurt, which gave Arkansas a 77-61 lead with 7:18 remaining. Houston never got closer than 13 the rest of the way.

Arkansas led by 13 in the first half, but only 47-43 at halftime. Derrick Smith's layup pulled Houston to 68-61 with 8:45 left, but Todd Day lobbed the inbounds pass for Mayberry, who cut around the defense and dunked the ball.

Houston, which made 28 turnovers overall, lost the ball on three consecutive possessions. Day converted a three-point play, then made a jumper over 7-foot-1 Alvaro Teheran, and Arlyn Bowers made a jumper for a 77-61 lead.
