Josh Davis led Tulane (0-1) with a career-high 27 points. Ricky Tarrant had 18.

Holsey, a junior forward, came off the bench less than 5 minutes into the game and immediately assumed a lead scoring role for Georgia Tech (1-0), which returns all five starters.

Brian Gregory opened his second season as Georgia Tech's coach by starting freshmen forwards Marcus Georges-Hunt, who had 14 points and seven rebounds, and Robert Carter, Jr., who had nine points and seven rebounds. Another freshman, Chris Bolden, made two 3-pointers and had 10 points.

Junior center Daniel Miller had 10 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for Georgia Tech. Miller helped the Yellow Jackets Georgia Tech take a commanding 47-23 advantage in rebounds.

The Yellow Jackets pushed their lead to double figures for the first time, at 20-10, on a jumper by Bolden. Georgia Tech led 39-30 before the Green Wave closed to within five points, at 41-36, on a basket by Davis early in the second half.

Georgia Tech took control with a 19-7 run. Holsey had a three-point play as part of his run of seven straight points during the run.
