Cavaliers roll 74-58 against rival Hokies

The Virginia men’s basketball team sailed by Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, building a 9-point lead by halftime en route to a workmanlike 74-58 victory. Freshman forward Evan Nolte led Virginia’s offensive efforts.


After long journey, Browman's time arrives

Senior guard Jontel Evans had six second-half assists and a career-high five steals to help Virginia (6-2, 0-0 ACC) take control after the break and notch its fifth consecutive victory following a 1-2 start to the season. Evans, Harris and Mitchell scored or assisted on all 15 of the Cavaliers’ second-half field goals and Virginia topped the 60-point mark for the fifth consecutive game in the 67-51 win.
