    ATLANTA (AP) -- Anthony Morrow scored 21 points and Javaris Crittenton had 13 points and nine assists in Georgia Tech's 97-46 victory over Winston-Salem State on Wednesday night.

    The Yellow Jackets (11-3) never trailed after Morrow hit the first of seven 3-pointers for a 15-12 lead.

    Darius Floyd led Winston-Salem State with 15 points. The Rams (1-17) have lost 14 straight games, all of them outside North Carolina.

    Georgia Tech's front line of Jeremis Smith, Ra'Sean Dickey and Mouhammad Faye combined for 30 points and 23 rebounds. Faye, a red-shirt freshman, made his second career start.

    Morrow, a reserve junior guard, hit a career-high seven shots beyond the arc.

    Crittenton, a freshman point guard, led a fast-break offense that outscored Winston-Salem State 22-6.

    The Jackets improved to 156-9 against non-conference opponents at Alexander Memorial Coliseum. After losing its Atlantic Coast Conference opener at Miami last month, Georgia Tech will visit No. 23 Clemson (15-0, 1-0) on Saturday.

    Guard Lewis Clinch, who has fallen out of favor with Jackets coach Paul Hewitt despite entering with a 14.2 scoring average that's second on the team, didn't start for the second straight game. He played a career-low five minutes and finished with no points.

    Winston-Salem State is playing a Division I schedule for the first full season as members of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

    The Rams' lone victory, 67-44 over Anderson, S.C., came in the opener. They visit MEAC opponent Morgan State on Friday night.
