Georgia Tech guard Mfon Udofia sprained his ankle in Wednesday night’s 75-62 loss to Illinois in Champaign, Ill. It is not believed to be serious. Tech’s next game is Tuesday against Georgia at McCamish Pavilion.
Udofia suffered the injury with about 3:30 remaining in the game. He was replaced by Pierre Jordan.
In the game, Tech led by as many as six points in the first half and as many as four in the second half against the undefeated Illini. However, a 10-0 run starting with 6:26 remaining in the game vaulted Illinois from a 58-54 deficit to a 64-58 lead and put the Yellow Jackets away over the final four minutes of the game.
Tech was outrebounded 36-30 and allowed the hot-shooting Illini to shoot 47.4 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range. Tech shot 44.2 percent from the field. Forward Kammeon Holsey led the team in scoring with 14 points off the bench.
