No. 2 Virginia shuts down Georgia Tech for 9th straight win

Share

The Yellow Jackets will hold a "Goldout" for Thursday night's game against the Cavaliers and Tech fans are asked to wear their Gold for the 8 p.m. tip at McCamish Pavilion. That's downright brutal. I think the Cavaliers have enough going for them to notch another win and cover over Georgia Tech in this one, so I'll lay the points.

But since that loss, Virginia has won eight straight, including five wins in ACC play. The Jackets are now 10-7 on the season and 3-1 in the ACC.

Virginia ranks first in assists allowed per game (7.8) while Georgia Tech ranks 157th (14.0).

The Cavaliers' average margin of victory in their last five games has been 12.6, down from 17.6 for the season.

Ty Jerome had 12 points, while Kyle Guy and Devon Hall each scored eleven. Hall also leads the team with 3.4 assists per night. After having four games of relatively clean play, Virginia's top-ranked defense suffocated the Jackets throughout the game.

Georgia Tech has won four straight entering tonight's game. The Cavaliers also own the countries' stingiest defence, giving up just 52.9 points per game, the fewest in the country with the 2nd-lowest field goal percentage against at just 36.4% and the 9th-lowest 3-point percentage against at just 29.4% from downtown. When it came to points off turnovers, Virginia scored 16 points on Tech's 18 turnovers while the Jackets only had two points off turnovers.

The Yellow Jackets feature a balanced offensive attack that should test the strong Cavaliers defense, particularly at McCamish Pavilion. Alvarado leads the team in scoring with an average of 12.9 points in addition to leading the team with 3 assists per game, while Lammers is the team's leading rebounder with 9.2 boards per game this season.

Senior center Ben Lammers has been a problem for a lot of teams down on the blocks this season.

Tadric Jackson led Georgia Tech with 14 points.

After the Cavaliers won the lone game against the Yellow Jackets last season, 62-49, this will be the first matchup of the year between these two teams.

Virginia will have a quick turnaround as they travel to Winston-Salem, N.C. for a Sunday evening showdown with Wake Forest. Georgia Tech will play No. 15 North Carolina on the road next on Saturday, Jan. 20.
