ATLANTA (AP)--Lewis Clinch scored a career-high 30 points in his final regular-season game and Georgia Tech beat Miami 78-68 on Wednesday night to end a seven-game losing streak.

Clinch, a senior playing in his final home game, made 9 of 16 3-point attempts as Georgia Tech (11-17, 2-13 Atlantic Coast Conference) took its first win since beating Wake Forest on Jan. 31.
