ATLANTA – Mike Scott scored 18 points and No. 15 Virginia bounced back from a tough loss at Duke, defeating Georgia Tech 70-38 on Thursday night.

The Cavaliers (15-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) were never seriously challenged by the Yellow Jackets, who put up their lowest-scoring game since a 53-38 loss to Wake Forest in 1982.

Virginia was coming off a 61-58 defeat at Cameron Indoor Stadium that snapped a 12-game winning streak. The Cavs wasted no time getting started on a new streak, taking advantage of a team that doesn’t have a true home arena– Georgia Tech is playing at Philips Arena while its campus facility undergoes a major renovation–nor much ACC-level talent.

Kammeon Holsey had 12 points to lead Georgia Tech (8-10, 1-3). The Yellow Jacket turn around quickly and face Clemson Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Littlejohn Coliseum.
