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