ATLANTA (AP) -Calvin Baker hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds remaining, and Sean Singletary scored 17 points in Virginia's 76-74 victory over Georgia Tech on Monday night.
Georgia Tech led 74-73 after Jeremis Smith's reverse layin, but Singletary quickly dribbled up the floor and passed quickly to Baker on the right wing.
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.
Baker scored five of his 10 points in the final 29.1 seconds. The sophomore guard finished with seven rebounds.
Zack Peacock scored a career-high 23 points to lead Georgia Tech (12-16, 5-9 Atlantic Coast Conference), 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.
The game was rescheduled from Feb. 21, when rain leaked through the roof and soaked part of the court.
Lauryna Mikalauskas had 15 points and seven rebounds for Virginia.
Anthony Morrow scored 13 points for Georgia Tech, but he hit just one of six 3-point attempts. Three of his jumpers failed to touch the rim in the second half.
