Recap: Georgia Tech vs. Virginia

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Malcolm Brogdon had 14 points and matched a career high with 11 rebounds as 20th-ranked Virginia pulled away to beat Georgia Tech 64-45 at McCamish Pavilion.

Joe Harris and Anthony Gill scored 11 points apiece for the Cavaliers (19-5, 10-1 ACC), who closed the game with an emphatic 22-1 run.

Virginia has won seven straight games and is off to its best start in conference play since opening 12-1 in 1981-82.

Top scorer Trae Golden and leading rebounder Robert Carter, Jr. both returned to the Georgia Tech lineup, but were non factors. Golden sat out the previous game with a groin injury, while Carter missed the Yellow Jackets' first 10 ACC games with a knee injury that required surgery.

Chris Bolden was the lone Georgia Tech player to reach double figures, finishing with 13.

The Yellow Jackets (12-12, 3-8) were held without a field goal over the final 9:52 as Virginia clamped down defensively. The Cavaliers entered second in the nation with 56.0 points allowed per game.

Kammeon Holsey was fouled on a layup and his free throw gave Georgia Tech a 44-42 lead with just under 10 minutes to go.

It was all Virginia the rest of the way.

"It was really something to see that happen," Virginia head coach Tony Bennett said about the late run.

Brogdon followed up a steal with a dunk and Harris drained a 3-pointer as the Cavaliers scored the next nine points to take control.

Georgia Tech's lone point was a Holsey free throw with 5:51 left.

"We just weren't strong enough and tough enough on the offensive end in those last eight minutes," said Georgia Tech head coach Brian Gregory.

The first half featured six lead changes and ended with the Yellow Jackets up 30-29. Bolden led all players with 11 points in the opening 20 minutes.

Roll with Boise State as Mountain West favorite

The Mountain West Conference winner lost one game the last two years after eight consecutive seasons of unbeaten campaigns. Don't expect a team to run the table in 2014 but Boise State could come close.
