Harrell was 5 for 5 from the field with three 3-pointers during the first half burst as the Cavaliers (6-3) won the opener of an eight-game homestand. Mustapha Farrakhan and Joe Harris led Virginia with 14 points each, and Mike Scott had 10 points and 13 rebounds.
Georgia (Bulldogs, 34,885 students, Athens, GA) 73, GEORGIA TECH 72 – Dustin Ware hit his seventh 3-pointer of the game with 15.3 seconds remaining, leading Georgia to a win over Georgia Tech on Tuesday night.
Ware scored all 21 of his points from outside the arc, missing only twice from long range. With the game tied at 70, Gerald Robinson drove toward the lane, luring the defense away from Ware, then kicked it back out to the 5-foot-11 junior standing all alone at the stripe.
NORTHERN HAITI HOPE FOUNDATION: After our recent trip to Haiti, we vowed to do more to help. Clean water is a critical issue for all Haitians. It's particularly problematic for those in rural areas. For $2,000 to $5,000 we can build a new well in a rural village as part of a program facilitated by the St. Barthelemy School and the Warrenton, VA Rotary. Send your donation to Wells of Health and Hope, c/o GPetty-VTA, 38 Garrett Street, Warrenton, VA 20186 and keep your eye on T.A.H. for progress reports. Thanks! CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR MORE INFO.
