CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- In outlining what he hoped his team would play like what he came to Virginia, coach Tony Bennett talked of playing hard, scrappy defense, rebounding the ball and taking good shots that were the product of a mostly patient offense.Now, the first-year coach can just show a tape of the Cavaliers' 82-75 victory against Georgia Tech (No. 18 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) on Wednesday night, a game when it all seemed to come together.
• The Cavaliers are 2-0 in ACC play. The win was Virginia's sixth straight, marking its longest win streak since the 2006-2007 season (seven-game streak).
• Sylven Landesberg was 6-for-17 from the field but a perfect 9-for-9 from the line as he led Virginia with 22 points.
• Virginia went 23-for-26 from the line as a team. Georgia Tech went 3-for-11, which hurt as the Yellow Jackets shot 51.6 percent from the field and lost.
• The Cavaliers matched last season's win total with their 10th win.
