CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Kyle Guy scored 21 points and No. 18 Virginia never trailed in a 75-54 victory against Lehigh on Saturday.

Isaiah Wilkins added 14 points and Devon Hall had 11 for the Cavaliers (8-0). Virginia led 39-23 at halftime and by as many as 23 in the second half.

Lance Tejada made five of Lehigh's 10 3-pointers and scored 22 points. The Mountain Hawks (4-4) shot just 40 percent (19-47).

The Cavaliers led 22-16 before using a 15-3 run to gain some separation late in the first half. Hall finished the burst with a 3-pointer, making it 37-19.


Lehigh: The Mountain Hawks need everything to go right in a matchup with a Power Five school and didn't have that kind of day against Virginia. Kyle Leufroy, their third-leading scorer with a 12.7 average, didn't score at all, and Lehigh had a season-high 17 turnovers leading to 24 points for the Cavaliers.

Virginia: The Cavaliers not only play tough defense, but they are very careful with the ball. They had just six turnovers against Lehigh.


Lehigh returns home after a four-game road trip to face Yale on Wednesday.

Virginia plays at West Virginia on Tuesday night.

Blount Eager to Assume Larger Role
The job will not be handed to rising sophomore Joey Blount. He'll have to earn it. This is head coach Bronco Mendenhall's program, after all. But after spending the 2017 season as free safety Quin Blanding's understudy, Blount is the leading candidate to take over in the secondary for the University of Virginia's all-time leading tackler.
