TUESDAY NIGHT HOOPS

VIRGINIA 74, Brown (Bears, 8,025 students, Providence, RI) 50 - Easy win against Brown leaves Wahoos upbeat about final two non-conference games against White on Thursday and Black on Friday. Mike Scott had 15 points and 10 rebounds and Sammy Zeglinski scored 14 points for the Cavs (7-5), who play at state and ACC rival Virginia Tech on Saturday. The Hoos led 39-29 at halftime and used a 23-7 second-half run to coast to the victory -- their 13th straight win against an Ivy league team.

Brown (5-8) was led by Peter Sullivan with 14 points and Adrian Williams with 13, but the Bears commited 16 turnovers that led to 25 Cavaliers points.

GEORGIA TECH 67, Georgia (Bulldogs, 25,335 students, Athens, GA) 62 - Zachery Peacock scored 18 points and Georgia Tech (9-5) rallied from a 13-point deficit to beat Georgia and complete the sweep of its state rival in the two major sports.

Georgia (9-6) was led by Trey Thompkins with 20 points.

No. 11 CLEMSON 66, Alabama (Crimson Tide, 27,052 students, Tuscaloosa, AL) 59 - Trevor Booker had 19 points to help No. 11 Clemson remain unbeaten with a victory over Alabama on Tuesday night. The Tigers (15-0) kept pace with their 17-0 start two years ago when they were the nation's last unbeaten. It took a stellar defensive effort down the stretch to hold off the Crimson Tide (10-4). Alabama led 42-41 with 14:16 to go, but the Tigers went on a 14-0 run to take control of the game.
