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.
