Joe Bertrand's late surge lifts Illinois over Georgia Tech

"It's really helped my confidence," Bertrand said. "I'm looking to shoot them more this year. I was driving more last year. I'm looking to do both."

Bertrand was 6 for 8 from the floor while going 3 of 4 behind the 3-point line.

"He brings a lot of energy off the bench," Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory said. "He's a great athlete. He's just streaky enough to be dangerous."
