ATLANTA -- Mfon Udofia scored 15 points, including the go-ahead basket with 1:15 to play, lifting Georgia Tech to a come-from-behind 66-60 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over Virginia on Sunday at McCamish Pavilion.

The Yellow Jackets trailed from the seven-minute mark of the first half and were down by nine with eight minutes to play. But Chris Bolden sparked a rally, hitting a 3-pointer from the wing and a free-throw line jumper that tied the game, 57-57.

Udofia followed with a floater from the lane that gave the Yellow Jackets (12-8, 2-6 in the ACC) their first lead since the first half.

Georgia Tech made 5-of-8 free throws in the final 44 seconds to seal their second victory in their last three games.

Joe Harris led Virginia (15-4, 5-3) with 18 points, including four 3-pointers. The loss drops the Cavaliers back into the jumbled middle of the ACC.

Bolden and Robert Carter each had 14 for the Yellow Jackets, who became the first ACC team to score 60 points against Virginia this season.

Akil Mitchell added 13 points and Justin Anderson finished with 10 for the Cavaliers.

Virginia built its lead in the first half from beyond the arc. Harris and Paul Jesperson curled off screens and hit 3-pointers during a 17-8 run to close the first half.

The Cavaliers weathered an early second-half challenge from Georgia Tech and appeared to be in command after Anderson made two free throws to put Virginia up, 57-48, with 8:12 to play.

But Virginia managed only one more field goal, a Jontel Evans' layup with 36 seconds left.

Udofia jump-started the Yellow Jackets' closing run with a 3-pointer at the 7:50 mark. Daniel Miller had a tip-in and Carter hit a jumper to help Georgia Tech rally.
