SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Senior forward Zachery Peacock had 22 points to lead Georgia Tech (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) to an 85-67 victory over Boston University in the fifth-place game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off on Sunday.
Georgia Tech (3-1) led 42-40 at the half, but the Terriers' inability to take care of the basketball and stifling defense eventually took its toll.
John Holland scored a game-high 23 points for Boston University (1-4). He had 11 points and four rebounds in the first half.
Georgia Tech lost 63-59 to No. 18 Dayton in the first round Thursday, but beat George Mason 70-62 in Friday's second round.
