Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory’s summary of last season’s game against Virginia was as apt as it was succinct.

Said Gregory, “It was brutal.”

The Cavaliers, whom the Yellow Jackets will play Sunday at McCamish Pavilion, obliterated Tech 70-38 at Philips Arena last January. It was the worst loss of the season and the Jackets’ lowest-scoring game since a 53-38 loss to Wake Forest in February 1982, a game that pre-dated the shot clock.

Tech trailed 14-11 with 12:33 to go in the first half and then permitted Virginia to finish the half on a 21-6 run.

Both the Virginia men's and women's basketball teams will square off against Georgia Tech on Sunday.

With Duke beating Florida State by 19 points Saturday in Tallahassee, the Virginia men's basketball team is now a half-game behind the Blue Devils for second place in the ACC standings.

UVA will look to even things up Sunday, as the Cavaliers go on the road to face Georgia Tech.

The Wahoos have won five-straight games against the Yellow Jackets, including four in a row on the road.

Virginia is third in the nation in scoring defense, and haven't allowed an ACC opponent to reach 60 points in seven conference games this year.
