Brogdon, D leads No. 2 Virginia past Georgia Tech, 57-28

AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Malcolm Brogdon scored 13 points and No. 2 Virginia ran its home winning streak to 21 games with a 57-28 victory against Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

Nine other players scored on a balanced night for the Cavaliers (18-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who pretty much broke the game open with a 10-0 first-half run because of how effective their defense was against the Yellow Jackets. The burst turned a 13-10 lead into a 13-point margin that never again dipped into single digits.

Virginia led 28-16 at halftime and, at the midpoint of the second half, Georgia Tech (9-9, 0-6) had added just four more points and trailed 41-20 as Cavaliers reserves started anticipating a chance to play.
