No. 13 Virginia rallies to edge Georgia Tech

Sam Hauser scored 22 points and Jay Huff added 18 points and a key late block as No. 13 Virginia overcame an 11-point second-half deficit to beat Georgia Tech 64-62 in Atlantic Coast Conference action Saturday night in Charlottesville, Va.

The Cavaliers (10-2, 6-0 ACC) won their sixth straight game and have won 14 consecutive conference games dating back to last season.

The Yellow Jackets (7-4, 3-2) saw their five-game winning streak come to an end. Jose Alvarado tallied 20 points, eight assists and six steals, Jordan Usher scored 19 points and Moses Wright had 13 points and five blocked shots.

Georgia Tech took its largest lead at 49-38 on Usher’s alley-oop dunk off a pass from Alvarado with 15:26 to play.

Minutes later, Virginia fought back with a 15-2 run to grab a 60-56 lead, capped by Hauser’s 3-pointer with 3:29 remaining.

Kihei Clark, who had missed his first eight shots, sank a step-back jumper in the paint to put the Cavaliers back on top 64-62 with 1:08 to play.

Huff blocked Wright’s game-tying layup attempt with 41 seconds left, and Michael Devoe missed a game-winning 3-point attempt at the buzzer.
