Georgia Tech rallies, beats Virginia 66-60

AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Tech rallied from a halftime deficit of
nine points, finally taking the lead on Mfon Udofia's jumper
with 1:19 remaining, and beat Virginia 66-60 on Sunday to end
the Cavaliers' four-game winning streak.

Virginia led 54-48 following a 3-pointer by freshman Evan Nolte
with 9:40 remaining. The Cavaliers then went more than 9 minutes
without a field goal before Jontel Evans' driving basket with 35
seconds remaining.

Udofia led Georgia Tech (12-8, 2-6 Atlantic Coast Conference)
with 15 points. Freshmen Chris Bolden and Robert Carter Jr. each
had 14. Kammeon Holsey had 10 points.

Joe Harris led Virginia (15-6, 5-3) with 18 points, including
only four points in the second half. Akil Mitchell had 13

Virginia, which shot 51.9 percent from the field in the first
half (14 of 27), made only 8 of 28 shots (28.6 percent) in the
second half.

Virginia ranks third in the nation and first in the ACC with its
average of 51.2 points allowed per game. Georgia Tech is the
first ACC team to reach 60 points against the Cavaliers.

Virginia led 37-28 at halftime. Bolden's 3-pointer with 3:45
remaining tied the game at 57-57 before Udofia's jumper gave the
Yellow Jackets their first lead since 20-17.

Carter opened the second half with back-to-back baskets,
followed by a short jumper by another freshman, Marcus
Georges-Hunt, to cut the lead to 37-34.

Nolte, from Milton, Ga., had a 3-pointer to end the modest
Georgia Tech run.

Justin Anderson had 10 points for the Cavaliers but had several
misses near the basket in the closing minutes.

Lines of unclaimed yellow foam fingers in empty rows of students
seats behind the Georgia Tech band were evidence the game
couldn't lure some fans from Super Bowl pregame parties.

When it became clear about midway through the first half that
the student seats would remain empty, personnel began collecting
the foam fingers. Before the workers could return for their
second swing through the empty seats, however, a line of young
kids cleaned out the remaining souvenirs.
