Georgia Tech pulled within one point of No. 3 Kansas in the last 9 seconds of play, but an intercepted pass kept the Yellow Jackets from getting off a final shot, securing a 71-66 victory for Kansas. The play "was there. We didn't execute it, and you have to put that on me," said coach Paul Hewitt.
