CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Top-ranked Virginia accomplished its first goal of the season. The next ones on the list will only get more difficult.
Ty Jerome scored 18 points and the Cavaliers held off depleted Georgia Tech 65-54 on Wednesday night, clinching at least a share of the regular season title and the top seed next month in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.
"It's definitely a good step in the right direction for what we want to do this year," Jerome said after the team's third regular-season title in the past five years. "We just can't get complacent because we have so much more to go."
