ATLANTA -- Zachery Peacock scored 18 points to lead four Georgia Tech players in double figures and the Yellow Jackets (No. 22 ESPN/USA Today) put on a shooting clinic in the second half to rout Kennesaw State 80-55 on Tuesday.
Peacock was a perfect 8-for-8 from the field and 2 of 2 from three-point range. He also had seven rebounds.
Georgia Tech, which led only 27-16 at halftime, made 19 of 29 shots overall to blow the game open in the second half. The Yellow Jackets were 7 of 10 on three-point attempts. Their biggest lead was 31 at 79-48 with 1:59 left to play.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
