ATLANTA (AP) - Robert Carter Jr. scored a career-high 20 points, including seven in Georgia Tech's 16-0 run to open the game, and the Yellow Jackets beat Wake Forest 82-62 on Saturday for their first Atlantic Coast Conference win.

Carter, a 6-foot-8 freshman, made 9 of 10 shots from the field, including two 3-pointers.

Georgia Tech (11-7, 1-5) was never threatened as it became the last ACC team to win its first conference game. It kept its leads in double figures for the final 38 minutes.

The Yellow Jackets made 4 of 6 3-pointers in the 16-0 run and pushed the lead to 30 points at 37-7 on a 3-pointer by another freshman, Marcus Georges-Hunt.

C.J. Harris had 18 points for Wake Forest (10-9, 3-4), which fell to 0-4 in road conference games. The Demon Deacons fell flat following their 86-84 upset of No. 18 North Carolina State on Tuesday night.
