UVA Ranked #1 AP Top 25 After Loss To Virginia Tech

Virginia passes first test as number one ranked team

- Larrañaga was an assistant coach at Virginia the last time the Cavaliers were ranked No. 1 in December 1983. It resulted in Virginia Tech's lowest output since scoring 52 in a home loss to Virginia on January 3; the Hokies had scored at least 80 points in eight of 10 games since.

The Cavaliers, who hold their opponents to a nation-best 52.8 points per game, negated all flow to the Hurricanes' offense. At that moment, Virginia Tech had a win probability of just 1.3 percent, per KenPom. Clemson, Duke and the Hokies all play two games in that stretch - including Virginia Tech's visit to Durham on Wednesday night, and the Blue Devils' trip to Clemson on Sunday.

The Hurricanes (18-7, 7-6) lost their second in a row, and lost at home for only the second time.

Blackshear hit a jumper, and Hall went 1-of-2 from the free throw line (a big miss) - it's now a four-point game.

Miami never led in the contest but had a handful of runs to cut the deficit to within five points in the second half, but Virginia always had an answer.

That strategy worked to perfection against Virginia, which was 11-38 on its 3-point attempts Saturday.

Justin Bibbs was the one Hokie who had an all-around strong performance with 15 points on 6-7 shooting from the field and 3-4 shooting from three-point range.

The Virginia Tech Hokies reeled of 17 straight points in the first half, causing Tony Bennett's Cavaliers to trail early in the game.

The Hokies return to action on Saturday when they travel to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech. Will a historic defense finally be enough to get them to the Final Four? The Vols scored 10 straight points midway through the second half to go ahead by 13 in their seventh victory in eight games.

Duke scored the final seven points of the first half.

AMES, Iowa - Udoka Azubuike scored 19 points, Malik Newman had 17 and Kansas bounced back from a brutal loss at Baylor.

Jermaine Jackson Jr.'s go-ahead 3 made it 43-40 Detroit, but the Vikings led 64-57 after 3s by Kasheem Thomas and Carpenter with 7:14 left to play. "Dewan Huell, a 6'11" center, is the leading scorer, on paper (12.3 ppg, 58.6% FG), but he has been struggling a bit of late, scoring just 6.8 points per game on 46.2 percent shooting over the past five games.

Between Bagley's absence from the court and a two-game losing skid, the Blue Devils had plenty of motivation in that game.

"Thankful, for sure, for the result", Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams said. 1 Virginia, which tops an improving NCAA Tournament resume.

Saturday's home foe-Syracuse-is now ninth in conference, while a road game against 12th-seeded Notre Dame seems less daunting against an Irish squad now 5-8 in ACC play.

Up two points with 14 seconds left, Missouri turned the ball over on an inbound.
