After falling 77-70 on Wednesday to Notre Dame, the No. 9 Cardinals bounced back with a solid road victory over Georgia Tech by a score of 65-50.

It was an ugly game and aside from a late push by the Yellow Jackets, the Cardinals controlled the whole way. Donovan Mitchell led the Cards with 20 points, Quentin Snider had 12 points and 7 assists, Anas Mahmoud chipped in 10 points and added an assortment of blocks as well, and Ray Spalding owned the boards for the Cards by grabbing 12 rebounds.

It wasn’t pretty, and it wasn’t entirely impressive, but the Cards got their first conference win and their first conference road win by 15 points. Deng Adel was injured during the first half when he took a knee to the head and walked off with help and what appeared to be a concussion  (which the commentator believed was “nothing but hurt feelings”). Donovan Mitchell had his 3rd straight 20+ point game and did it with his long-range shot. Anas continues to be an enforcer, and Quentin is running the offense with minimal turnovers. Hopefully Deng doesn’t miss much time because the ACC is a grind this year and there are no easy wins. However, the Cards took a step in the right direction with their win today.

Up next, the Cards host Pittsburgh on Wednesday at 7pm, the game can be seen on the ACC Network.

Go Cards!
