Virginia improved to 8-0 in the John Paul Jones Arena.
UVa registered its first victory over Gonzaga. The Bulldogs now lead the series 2-1.
Gonzaga has lost four consecutive games for the first time since dropping the final four contests of the 1996-97 season. The 21-point loss is Gonzaga's worst defeat since losing to Boise State by 25 (94-69) on Dec. 9, 2000.
Lars Mikalauskas made his first start of the season tonight. He started 12 games last season, including the final three.
Will Harris was in the starting lineup for the second consecutive game.
Soloman Tat entered the game at 5:49 mark of the first half. He missed the last 10 games after playing 12 minutes in the season-opener vs. Arizona (Nov. 12). Tat had a career-high 5 assists, including four in the first half.
UVa used its sixth different starting lineup this season.
Virginia scored a JPJA record 60 points in the first half. The last time UVa scored 60 points in the first half of a game was Dec. 23, 2005 vs. Loyola (Md.).
The Cavaliers set the school record for made three-pointers in a game with 18. The old mark was 15 vs. North Carolina (Feb. 14, 1990) and Hampton (Nov. 25, 1998). UVa made 12 three-point field goals in the first half, including their first four attempts and 8 of their first 9.
UVa made its first 10 free throws tonight and dating back to the American game, the Cavaliers drained 23 consecutive free throws.
Sean Singletary made his first five three-point field goal attempts tonight and also made his final three-point attempt in the American game for six straight made three-pointers. It is the second consecutive game Singletary has made five or more three-pointers. His seven three-pointers are a career high.
In two games against Gonzaga, Singletary has scored 72 points. Singletary's 37 points are a career high and a JPJA record. He held the old JPJA scoring mark with 27 points against Hampton (Dec. 16). His previous career high was 35 points vs. Gonzaga last season (Dec. 17).
Virginia scored 100+ points in a game for the second time this season (104 vs. Maryland Eastern Shore - Nov. 26). The 108 points are a JPJA record.
The 108 points scored by UVa is the most since it scored 112 vs. Grambling on Dec. 30, 2001.
With the 37 points tonight, Sean Singletary has scored 30+ points in back-to-back games (33 vs. American - Dec. 30). It is believed to be the first time a UVa player has scored 30 points in back-to-back games since 1998 when Norman Nolan had 31 points vs. Wake Forest (Jan. 4, 1998) and 30 points vs. Liberty (Jan. 7, 1998).
Tunji Soroye scored a season-high five points.
