Last Meeting: Georgia Tech 68, Virginia 64 (Jan. 9, 2016, Atlanta)
Leg one of the Virginia Basketball 2016 Revenge and Redemption Tour kicks off Thursday night in Washington, D.C. The Hoos will be looking to avenge one of the road losses that gives some critics ammunition when questioning Virginia's resume for an NCAA Tournament #1 seed.
ACC Player of the Year and Sporting News First-Team All-American Malcolm Brogdon will lead the Cavaliers' effort against what could be some tired Georgia Tech legs. The Jackets roared back from an 18-point second half deficit Wednesday night and went to overtime with Clemson. Hopefully Virginia comes out fresh and energized, building momentum for the weeks ahead.
