Cavaliers crush Terps

Scott carries scoring load during first half; shooters come alive after break

To all those Cavalier fans falling off the Virginia men's basketball bandwagon during the team's recent slide, senior forward Mike Scott and the rest of the squad delivered an emphatic second-half message against Maryland Saturday: Don't jump ship just yet.

Tied at 31 going into halftime, the No. 22 Cavaliers out-scored the Terrapins 40-13 the rest of the way en route to a 71-44 demolition of their nearby ACC rivals.
