Virginia Tops Radford 54-44


In what can only be described as a sloppy game all around, Virginia topped Radford last night, 54-44. The Cavaliers shot 27.7% from the floor, the lowest shooting percentage since December 4, 2005.

"We probably have to repaint the rims after that game," head coach Tony Bennett said after the game.

In a run that stretched nearly 15 minutes across both halves, the Cavaliers scored 22 straight against Radford.

Radford led for the majority of the first half, jumping out to a 14-8 lead in the first 10 minutes before Virginia started clawing back. When the 'Hoos took a 20-19 lead off a jumper by freshman guard K.T. Harrell with 6:38 to go in the half, they never looked back.

"[Radford head coach Brad Greenberg] said to me before the game, ‘You weren't very nice to my brother.' So I knew he was softening me up and setting us up."

Greenberg is the brother of Virginia Tech's Seth Greenberg, whose Hokies fell to the Cavaliers 57-54 on Sunday.

Senior Mike Scott, who went 8-for-8 in free throws, failed to score from the floor until the final 18 seconds of the game. The put back gave Scott 10 points on the night, and his fifth straight double-double (13 rebounds) this season. He becomes the first Cavalier to do so since Ralph Sampson in 1983.

Senior guard Mustapha Farrakhan and freshman guard Joe Harris led the team with 14 points a piece, while Harrell added 13. Scott had 13 rebounds, followed by junior center Assane Sene with 7.

The Cavaliers improve to 6-3 on the season and will take a 10-day break for exams before hosting Oregon on December 17. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:00 p.m.
