HALFTIME: Virginia 24, Wake Forest 26

Road woes slow UVa down in sloppy first half

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Another ACC road game, another slow start for the Virginia Cavaliers.

In an arena where they won by more than 30 in 2015, the Hoos trail Wake Forest by 2 at the break, 26-24.

Malcolm Brogdon led Virginia's scoring with 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting, but 0-for-3 from deep. Anthony Gill chipped in 7, and Marial Shayok started to show some resurgence after a long two months riding the pine, as the sophomore scored 5 points and shot 100 percent from the field.

Devin Thomas was the first-half leader for Wake Forest. The forward has 9 points and 4 boards at intermission, the most for Wake in each category.

Wake shot 50 percent from the field, but did not hit any of their 8 three-point attempts. The Hoos were at 41 percent from the field, but also only 1 of 9 from three.

The Demon Deacons hold an eight-rebound advantage, while UVa has scored five more points off turnovers than the Deacs.

Jack Salt is the only player in the game with multiple fouls.
