HOOS WIN RAINOUT GAME

VIRGINIA 76, GEORGIA TECH 74

Calvin Baker hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds remaining, and Sean Singletary scored 17 points in the Wahoos 76-74 victory over Georgia Tech in the Rainout Game makeup.

Georgia Tech led 74-73 after Jeremis Smith's reverse layup, but Singletary quickly dribbled up the floor and passed to Baker on the right wing. Baker nailed the game winner.

On Virginia's previous possession, Baker's putback of Singletary's missed reverse layup gave the Cavaliers a 73-72 lead, their first since the 4:20 mark. Sophomore Baker scored five of his 10 points in the final 29.1 seconds.

Zack Peacock scored a career-high 23 points to lead Georgia Tech (12-16, 5-9 ACC), but his errant pass on the left baseline was stolen by Singletary and set up Baker's putback.

Moe Miller's 3-point attempt at the buzzer fell off the rim to guarantee the Yellow Jackets' first losing home record at Alexander Memorial Coliseum since 1980-81.

Virginia (14-13, 4-10 ACC) began the game as the league's worst team, but the Cavaliers have won two of three.
