The 12th ranked Tigers were the highest ranked team the Cavaliers have beaten since a 68-66 overtime win over No. 8 Duke at JPJA (Feb. 1, 2007)
Both of Virginia’s ACC wins this season have come in overtime
Virginia had five double figure scorers for the first time since the win at Georgia Tech on Dec. 28
