UVA bounces back with blowout win

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (AP/WWBT) -

UVA suffered a disheartening loss to end their 8 game winning streak.  But the Wahoos bounced back in a big way Sunday.

Mike Tobey scored 19 points and Virginia shot 63.8 percent and beat Wofford 74-39 at the JPJ.

Akil Mitchell and Joe Harris added 15 points each for the Cavaliers (10-3), who rebounded from a loss to Old Dominion with one of their most complete performances of the season at both ends of the floor.

Spencer Collins led the Terriers (6-7) with 17 points while Wofford scoring leader Karl Cochran hit his only basket 47 seconds into the game and finished with five points (12 below his average) on 1-for-11 shooting. No other Terriers players scored more than four points.

Coming off a 56-55 victory at Xavier, Wofford trailed just 17-15 after 14 minutes before Virginia closed the half with a 14-2 run to take charge. The Terriers scored two early second-half baskets, but Virginia tightened up defensively and stretched the run to 39-6 spanning the halves.

UVA will next open up ACC play next Sunday against the Tar Heels.
