Cubaj's big game lifts No. 22 Georgia Tech over Wake Forest

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Lorela Cubaj scored 18 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and had seven assists and No. 22 Georgia Tech ended a three-game losing streak with a 65-56 win over Wake Forest on Sunday to close the regular season.

Cubaj scored nine points in the fourth quarter, including the clinching free throws with 31.8 seconds to go as the Yellow Jackets (20-9, 10-7) secured the sixth-seed in next week's Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

Nerea Hermosa added 16 points, Lotta-Maj Lahtinen added 12 with seven rebounds and five assists and Avyonce Carter scored 11.

Georgia Tech had not won a game in regulation since Feb. 1 and had lost 5 of 6 with three of the previous four games decided in overtime. The Yellow Jackets opened ACC play with a 62-45 win over the Demon Deacons.

Christina Morra had 14 points and nine rebounds for Wake Forest (14-15, 4-15) and Niyah Becker scored 13.

Georgia Tech shot 48% and had a 42-24 rebounding advantage but couldn't breakaway from Wake Forest, which was 8 of 18 from 3-point range to 2 of 14 for the Yellow Jackets.

Jewell Spear hit a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the first half to give Wake Forest a 33-32 lead. Hermosa and Cubaj combined for 12 points in the third quarter as Tech went up 48-41. Cubaj opened the fourth with two free throws but Becker's jumper pulled Wake within 54-53 with 5:09 to go. The Demon Deacons went 1 of 7 from there.
