CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Matt Harpring scored 22 points, and Georgia Tech hit 10 3-pointers Thursday night in an 83-65 victory over Virginia.
The Yellow Jackets (12-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 39-26 at halftime after shooting 62.5 percent, then let the Cavaliers (9-8, 1-3) get no closer than eight points the rest of the way.
Norman Nolan led Virginia with 19 points, Curtis Staples hit half of Virginia's eight 3s and scored 16, and Colin Ducharme added 10 points.
Harpring, leading the ACC with 22.9 points and 10.3 rebounds a game, hit 9 of 12 shots, including a 3-pointer, as the Yellow Jackets shot 56.9 percent for the game. Michael Maddox added 20 points and Travis Spivey 13.
The Yellow Jackets capped a red-hot first half by closing with a 10-0 run. Harpring was 5-for-7 and Maddox 4-for-6 as they combined for 21 points in the half.
Virginia shot just 30 percent in the half, with scoring leaders Nolan (3-for-11) and Staples (1-for-5) going a combined 4-for-16 (25 percent).
Alvin Jones, a 6-foot-11 freshman who came in leading the ACC in blocks with an average of 4.6, had two in the first two minutes, one on Nolan and the other on Ducharme. Jones added three more in the second half, all on Nolan, leaving the senior forward shaking his head in frustration.
Georgia Tech finished with 10 blocks.
After averaging 25.9 points on 53.4 percent shooting in his last seven games, Nolan's points against the Yellow Jackets came on 7-for-18 shooting, and he his hit last four shots with the outcome long since decided.
