UVa Trounces Georgia Tech with the Three Ball, Final Score 72-64

Next on the UVa Basketball Schedule: Maryland, January 27, Charlottesville, Va.

Virginia dropped 10 treys to lead by as much as 18 in the second half en route to beating Georgia Tech 72-64 and improving to 11-9 on the season and 2-3 in the ACC. Senior Mustapha Farrakhan led the Cavaliers with 23 points (2-4 from the three), followed by freshmen KT Harrell with 17 (3-4 from three) and Joe Harris with 11 (3-5). The Cavaliers shot 66.7% from behind the arc and 50% overall.

Virginia's 43 points in the first half are the most scored in the first half since scoring 44 against Georgia Tech on December 28, 2008. Farrakhan's 23 points was an ACC career high for him.

The score was entirely more lopsided than what the 8-point box score would suggest. Coming off three straight winnable losses, this could be the confidence boost the Cavaliers need to get this ACC season underway.

The Virginia offense was on and off tonight, but the defense played a full 40 minute game. Georgia Tech, who wouldn't give up even in the final minute, is a team that had just rattled off two ACC wins, including North Carolina (by 78-58) and Wake Forest (74-39).

They're no Duke, which would have been nice, but they'll do for now.
