Georgia Tech looked like they had a win locked up at Charlotte, leading 53-45 with 1:26 left.

The Yellow Jackets would eventually go on to win, but it wasn’t quite how Brian Gregory drew it up. Charlotte reeled off a 10-2 run, tying the game at 55 on a three when Georgia Tech turned the ball over with 16 seconds left.

That set the table for a wild finish, as Trae Golden buried a three with 3.6 seconds left. Pierria Henry answered with a three of his own, but it game a split second after the buzzer sounded.

Georgia Tech desperately needed this win after losing at Vanderbilt last weekend. Golden finished with 24 points.
