Charlottesville - Malcolm Brogdon scored 17 points, a career-best 11 rebounds and seven assists and No. 20 Virginia used two big first-half runs to take charge and beat Boston College 77-67 Wednesday night. The Cavaliers win their sixth straight game and improve to 9-and-1 in the ACC, 18-and-5 overall.
Anthony Gill and Justin Anderson added 13 points each for the Cavaliers. Virginia led 40-21 at halftime and never let its margin dip below 13 until the final minutes, when the Eagles scored 12 straight to get within 71-64 before Brogdon clinched it at the free throw line.
Ryan Anderson scored 20 points to lead the Eagles (6-16, 2-7), who lost for the ninth time in 11 games. Their only two victories in that stretch have come against last-place Virginia Tech, who fell to Florida State 70-50 Wednesday night.
