Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (AP) -

Sophomore guard Malcolm Brogdon scored 14 points and tied his career high with 11 rebounds as No. 20 Virginia broke open a tight game with a huge late run for a 64-45 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

The Cavaliers (19-5, 10-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 44-42 before closing their seventh straight victory with a 22-1 run.

Joe Harris and Anthony Gill added 11 points each for the Cavaliers.

Georgia Tech (12-12, 3-8) led 30-29 at halftime, but the injury-ravaged Yellow Jackets ran out of gas down the stretch.

They lost 45-41 at Clemson on Tuesday with just seven scholarship players available.

Sophomore guard Chris Bolden scored 11 of his 13 points in the first half to lead the Yellow Jackets.
