By Matt Winkeljohn/AP 1:39am, November 12, 2013Trae Golden hit his first four shots and went on to lead all scorers with 16 points Monday as Georgia Tech struggled a bit before beating Delaware State 68-50 in McCamish Pavilion.
Golden, a senior guard who transferred from Tennessee over the summer to be closer to his ailing father in metropolitan Atlanta, finished 7-of-10 shooting, but he and the Yellow Jackets (2-0) had just a single-digit lead late before closing well against the Hornets (1-1).
Sophomore forward Marcus Georges-Hunt had 12 points and eight rebounds for the Yellow Jackets, and fellow sophomore forward Robert Carter Jr. added 11 points and blocked five shots.
Delaware State junior forward Tyshawn Bell was the only Hornet to score in double figures with 15 points.
