ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Will Bynum showed just how capable he is of providing instant offense.
Bynum scored a career-high 25 points as No. 14 Georgia Tech remained unbeaten at home with an 81-71 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over Maryland.
Georgia Tech (14-2, 2-1 ACC) struggled in the first half, falling behind, 35-32. Maryland took its largest lead at 47-40 on John Gilchrist's jumper with 15:50 remaining,
Jarrett Jack answered with a 3-pointer and Bynum came alive. The Arizona transfer nailed a pair of 3-pointers around a basket by the Terrapins' Chris McCray for a 49-49 tie.
Bynum gave the Yellow Jackets the lead for good at 56-54 with a 3-pointer with 9:34 remaining. That started a 14-1 run by Georgia Tech that featured nine points from Bynum, who made a pair from the line for a 67-55 cushion with just over six minutes left.
Included in Bynum's big burst were a pair of the signature moves that made him a playground legend in Chicago. He converted a spinning layup on one drive and used a nifty crossover drbble for another easy hoop.
The Terrapins (10-4, 1-2) failed to generate any inside offense from leading scorer Jamar Smith, who made just 2-of-12 shots for seven points. Smith entered averaging 14.9 points.
The Yellow Jackets tweaked their lineup for the second straight game, re-inserting B.J. Elder in place of Bynum, who received his first start in Thursday's win over Virginia. The move didn't hamper Bynum, who made five 3-pointers and was 8-of-14 from the floor.
Jack, a Maryland native, scored 17 points and Luke Schenscher added 15, 11 rebounds and three blocks. Clarence Moore also pulled down 11 rebounds, helping the Yellow Jackets control matters inside.
John Gilchrist poured in a career-high 27 points, but no other Terrapin reached double figures. Outside of Gilchrist's 11-of-19 performance, Maryland shot 28 percent (14-of-50).
Georgia Tech won for just the fifth time in the last 18 meetings with Maryland.
