CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Justin Anderson scored 18 points and Virginia extended its home winning streak to 19 games Sunday with a 68-50 victory against St. John's in the second round of the NIT.

Taylor Barnette added 13 points for Virginia (23-11). The Cavaliers will host Iowa in the quarterfinals Wednesday night, with the winner earning a chance to move on to Madison Square Garden in New York.

Phil Green IV led the Red Storm (17-16) with 18 points and Jakarr Sampson had 14. St. John's played without scoring leader D'Angelo Harrison, who was suspended for the rest of the season on March 1.

The Cavaliers used a 20-3 run in the first half to take command, 24-11. St. John's closed to 40-33 midway through the second half, but Anderson answered with a 3-pointer, igniting a 14-4 surge.
