    BLACKSBURG, Va.. -- Sasha Goodlett's 18 points helped give Georgia Tech (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 17 AP) a 76-66 victory over Virginia Tech on Thursday night.

    The win clinched a first-round bye for the Yellow Jackets (20-7, 11-4) in next week's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and extended their school record for ACC wins in a season to 11.

    Goodlett, the Jackets' center and leading scorer, hit 7 of 12 shots. Metra Walthour, who scored 14 points (going 7 for 7 at the foul line) helped Goodlett give Georgia Tech a 40-24 halftime lead. Nineteen of the Jackets' 40 first-half points came from the bench.

    Georgia Tech led 46-28 early in the second half for its largest lead. Virginia Tech (7-21, 3-12) rallied behind Aerial Wilson, who led the Hokies with 21 points, and cut the Jackets' lead to 55-48. But Georgia Tech made eight of 10 foul shots in the last two minutes to seal it.
