Virginia 70, No. 14 Michigan 58

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 29, 2011
Mike Scott had 18 points and 11 rebounds Tuesday night and Virginia used a 19-2 second-half run to take command and beat No. 14 Michigan 70-58 in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge. Joe Harris added 18 points and freshman Malcolm Brogdon had 16 for the Cavaliers (6-1), who trailed 39-34 before Harris' floater sparked the burst. Brogdon had eight points in the run, which made it 53-41 with 6:43 remaining. Scott had six points and Harris five. The Wolverines (5-2), who used a 16-10 run starting the second half to match their biggest lead of the game, went 6 1/2 minutes without a point during one stretch as Virginia repeatedly rebounded missed shots and went the other way. The Cavaliers outrebounded Michigan 36-26. Zack Novak led the Wolverines with 12 points and Trey Burke had 11. Tim Hardaway Jr., Michigan's leading scorer with a 17-point average, missed the last 14 minutes of the first half after picking up his second personal foul and never got going. He scored just five. The game remained close early in the second half and was tied at 41 when Evan Smotrycz, who scored 10 for Michigan and was 4 for 4 from the field, went to the bench with his fourth foul. That coincided with the end of a rest for Scott, and he went to work immediately. He first posted up against Hardaway, then rebounded a miss and scored on a short baseline jumper, giving Virginia a 45-41 lead with 9:05 to play. Brogdon added a 3-pointer, Scott hit an 8-foot fadeaway and Harris followed another Michigan miss with a 3-pointer to make it 53-41. Hardaway's 8-footer and a 3-pointer from Stu Douglass made it 53-46, but Brogdon answered with a 3-pointer from the right side and Harris' 3 after another Wolverines miss made it 59-46. From before the run began until Brogdon's free throw made it 60-49, Brogdon (12), Harris (10) and Scott (six) combined for all 28 of Virginia's points over a stretch of 11 minutes. The Cavaliers played stout defense in the first half, holding Michigan to 40 percent shooting, but missed numerous wide-open 3-point shots, finishing 3 for 10 from behind the arc. A 10-4 run to end the half gave Virginia a 24-23 lead at the break. --- Follow Hank on Twitter at http://twitter.com/hankkurzjr
