Virginia looks to sweep Virginia Tech

The teams last played on January 15, when the Cavaliers outshot Virginia Tech from the field 58.5 per cent to 43.2 per cent and hit six more 3-pointers on the way to a 22-point victory.

The Cavaliers, who improved to 7-2 against nationally ranked teams this season, have won in six of their last eight visits to their in-state rival.

The 'Hoos (23-2, 11-2 ACC) led by three at the break, but had an unsightly eight turnovers in the first half, and allowed the Hokies (20-6, 9-5 ACC) free will in the paint. The big difference was the Hokies going 3-of-28 from three-point range on the night in a six-point loss.

When Virginia Tech pulled within 58-51, Guy drained a 3-pointer with 2:09 to play. Hokies' junior Kerry Blacksher Jr. recorded his 5th double-double of the season with 23 points and 13 rebounds.

No. 22 WISCONSIN 64, IL 58: Brad Davison scored 18 points and Khalil Iverson added 16 as Wisconsin held off IL in Madison, Wisconsin.

Kyle Guy scored 23 points to lead the Cavaliers.

An Ahmed Hill and-one cut the Virginia lead to 61-54 with 1:25 to go, but Braxton Key nailed a three at the end of the shot clock on UVA's next possession to push the lead back to 10, and that was effectively it.

The game was tied at 32 after Hill's 3-pointer to open the scoring in the second half, but the Cavaliers gradually built their lead to 48-38 with about 11 minutes to play. They finished with 13 turnovers.

Virginia Tech has relied heavily on its seniors this year.
