It took all forty minutes for Virginia to get its first road win, but it came in one heckuva fashion.
Darius Thompson hit his only shot of the night as time expired, banking in a three to lift Virginia from a 71-69 deficit to a 72-71 win. The Hoos improved to 5-3 in ACC play, while Wake Forest dropped to 1-7.
Malcolm Brogdon set a new career high with 28 points, and added 7 rebounds as well. Anthony Gill scored 17 for Virginia, and fouled out with 28 seconds remaining. London Perrantes had a very quiet game, missing both of his threes in the first half and going 0-for-3 for the game.
Wake Forest's leading scorers were Devin Thomas—who briefly left the game with an apparent ankle injury—with 19, and Bryant Crawford with 22.
Virginia looks to get two in a row with a trip to 16th-ranked Louisville on Saturday. Wake Forest travels to South Bend for a Sunday tilt against Notre Dame
