CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Mustapha Farrakhan scored 23 points and K.T. Harrell added 17 on Saturday as Virginia beat Georgia Tech 72-64 to end its three-game losing streak.
The Cavaliers (11-8, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) made 10
3-pointers and took command with an 18-3 burst late in the first
half. It gave them a 43-29 lead at the intermission, and they
slowed things down in the second half while Georgia Tech struggled
to catch up.
The Yellow Jackets (9-9, 2-3), coming off blowout wins over
North Carolina and Wake Forest, fell to 0-6 on the road and looked
like the team that lost 80-63 at Kennesaw State.
Iman Shumpert led Georgia Tech with 19 points and Brian Oliver
had 13. Glen Rice Jr., their second-leading scorer, missed 9 of 11
shots and scored five points -- eight below his average.
