The Cavaliers are now 16-1 at the John Paul Jones Arena. With the victory tonight, UVa extended its school record for home wins in a season to 16.

Tonight, the Cavaliers started the same lineup (Mamadi Diane, Jason Cain, Tunji Soroye, J.R. Reynolds, and Sean Singletary) for the fifth game in a row.

Tonight's attendance of 14,931 is the third largest ever at the John Paul Jones Arena (Arizona - 15,219 and Duke - 15,169 are the largest two).

UVa improves to 20-9 on the season, marking its first 20-win season since 2000-01 (20-9).

Virginia leads the all-time series with Virginia Tech 78-47.

The Cavaliers went 9:26 during the first half without a field goal. J.R. Reynolds' three-pointer at the 14:40 mark was UVa's only field goal until Adrian Joseph made a jumper with 5:14 left in the opening half. UVa made four free throws during the field goal drought.

Virginia is now 4-1 against Associated Press ranked teams this season.

UVa outrebounded Virginia Tech 22-12 in the first half and held a 38-25 advantage in the game.

Virginia Tech, which entered the game averaging 8.6 steals per game, did not register its first steal until 2:58 remaining in the contest. The Hokies finished the contest with a season-low one steal (their previous low was four steals vs. Georgia Tech - Jan. 28)

With 10 three-point field goals tonight, Virginia increased its single season total to 230, just two shy of the school record of 232 made in the 1994-95 season. The 10 threes tonight marks the eighth time this season UVa has made 10 or more threes in a game.

Virginia went undefeated at home in ACC play (8-0). It is the most ACC home wins in a season and it marked the first time Virginia went undefeated at home in conference play since the 1981-82 season when UVa was 7-0 (Virginia was also 7-0 at home in conference play in 1980-81).

With two three-point field goals tonight, J.R. Reynolds moved into first place in career three-point field goals made among active ACC players with 211. NC State's Engin Atsur has 210 and Virginia Tech's Zabian Dowdell has 208.

With their 11th conference victory, the Cavaliers have won more conference games than in any season since 1994-95. In that season, Virginia went 12-4 in conference play.

Sean Singletary (17 points) and J.R. Reynolds (13 points) both scored in double figures for the 18th consecutive game.

Either Sean Singletary or J.R. Reynolds has led Virginia in scoring in each of the last 12 games.
