Kyle Guy led the Cavaliers with 16 points and four assists, while Virginia Beach native Devon Hall chipped in 15 points, five rebounds, and four assists.

“We just got back to the basics,” Guy said on the court after the game. “Defending and rebounding, just playing our best basketball, and even though it wasn’t our best, we shot for perfection. You shoot for the moon you’re going to land amongst the stars.”

UVA entered the game as the No. 1 seed in the nation, and with the win, the Cavaliers will almost certainly be the top overall seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.

The ‘Hoos will find out the site of their first round game and opponent Sunday afternoon during the selection show.
