CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The second-ranked Virginia Cavaliers extended their home winning streak to 21 with a 57-28 lockdown win over Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

The Cavaliers (18-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) held the Yellow Jackets to a season-low 24 percent shooting from the field. Georgia Tech (9-9, 0-6) did not make a shot outside of the paint area.

Virginia’s suffocating defense, which leads the nation in points per game allowed, surrendered just 12 second-half points to Georgia Tech. Guard Malcolm Brogdon led the Cavaliers with a game-high 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting.

Indiana 89, Maryland 70

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — After holding a slim halftime lead, the 23rd-ranked Hoosiers rode improved shooting to a victory over the 13th-ranked Terrapins.

Maryland (17-3, 5-2 Big Ten) entered the game leading the conference in field-goal defense, but Indiana (15-4, 5-1) shot 72 percent in the second half and finished the game shooting at a 60 percent clip. The Terrapins shot 50.9 percent from the floor, including 10-for-20 accuracy from 3-point range. The Hoosiers shot 15-for-22 (68.2 percent) from behind the arc on the night.

Guard Yogi Ferrell shot 7-for-8 from behind the arc and 8-for-10 overall to pace Indiana with 24 points. Hoosiers guard James Blackmon Jr. added 22 points on 8-for-14 shooting. Forward Jake Layman led Maryland with 13 points.

Arizona 89, Stanford 82

STANFORD, Calif. — Forwards Stanley Johnson and Brandon Ashley scored 25 of their combined 36 points in the second half, leading the seventh-ranked Wildcats to a victory over the Cardinal.

Both Johnson and Ashley were limited by foul trouble in the foul-filled game, but Johnson finished with 19 points in 28 minutes of action and Ashley had 17 points in just 16 minutes on the court. Guard Chasson Randle had 26 points for Stanford.

Fifty-one fouls were called, resulting in 67 free-throw attempts. One player fouled out, and seven others finished with four fouls. Arizona (17-2, 5-1 Pac-12) beat Stanford (13-5, 4-2) for the 10th straight time.

DePaul 64, Seton Hall 60

NEWARK, N.J. — The Blue Demons ended a 51-game losing streak to ranked opponents with a win over the 24th-ranked Pirates.

The Blue Demons (11-9) are off to their best start in the Big East Conference since joining in 2005. Coach Oliver Purnell’s team is 5-2 in the league. DePaul finished in last place in the Big East each year since joining in 2005-06. Sophomore guard Billy Garrett Jr. and forward Myke Henry led DePaul with 14 points each.

Freshman forward Angel Delgado scored 19 points and grabbed 19 rebounds for Seton Hall (13-5, 3-3). Delgado recorded his sixth double-double of the season. Only UCLA forward Kevon Looney has more double-doubles among freshmen this season.

Notre Dame 85, Virginia Tech 60

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Senior guard Jerian Grant led four Notre Dame players in double figures with 18 points, and the eighth-ranked Fighting Irish shot well, rebounded well and never trailed en route to a victory over the Hokies.

Notre Dame (18-2, 6-1 ACC) won for the 14th time in 15 games. The Irish lost only once — to No. 2 Virginia — in the past 60 days. The Irish are off to their best 20-game start since opening 19-1 in 1973-74.

Irish senior swingman Pat Connaughton added 17 points and 10 rebounds, junior power forward Zach Auguste had 16 points, and sophomore guard Demetrius Jackson scored 12. Guard Ahmed Hill scored 13 points to pace Virginia Tech (8-10, 0-5), which lost its sixth straight.
