Virginia looks to sweep Virginia Tech

Tony Bennett's team did have a problem turning the ball over on Monday night in a highly-anticipated ranked matchup with the No. 20 Virginia Tech Hokies, but their timely scoring and staunch defense prevailed in a statement 64-58 victory to complete the season sweep of their in-state rivals. The Cavaliers are 2-2 when allowing opponents to shoot any better than that. Guy has now scored 20+ points in three consecutive games.
