Spread: Vegas: Virginia -1.5; Pomeroy: Virginia -1
Last Meeting: January 13, 2010: Virginia 82, No. 20 Georgia Tech 75
Last Time Out: Georgia Tech 74, Wake Forest 39 (Not a typo)
Series: Georgia Tech 38-31

Virginia has won three of the last four meetings between these two teams, but the Jackets are coming off big wins over North Carolina (78-58) and a very bad Wake Forest team.

Whereas Georgia Tech came off three straight losses two pick up two encouraging and impressive victories, Virginia has lost five of the past seven contests, including the past three straight ACC games.

Virginia fans should look forward to another very ugly game by both teams, though it's unclear whether it's due to actual ugliness or the strength of both teams' defense. Against North Carolina, both Georgia Tech and the Tar Heels were held to a combined 26.8% shooting and 36 forced turnovers.
