Glen Rice Jr. scored 19 points in his first game back from suspension to lead Georgia Tech to a 73-60 victory over Virginia Commonwealth at the Charleston Classic on Friday night. Rice had 11 points during an 18-4 run as the Yellow Jackets (3-1) overcame a 13-point deficit. Georgia Tech will take on LSU in Sunday's fifth-place game at TD Arena. Rice had missed his team's first three games for a rules violation. Georgia Tech's top returning scorer and rebounder got off to a slow start, but found his game in the second half. He also had eight rebounds, four assists and four steals. VCU (1-2) will take on Western Kentucky in Sunday's seventh-place game as last year's Final Four participants look to avoid a third straight loss.
