Hall and Guy lead Hoos with 13 points apiece

NCAA Basketball: East Carolina at Virginia Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia basketball overcame a slow start after almost two weeks off and beat visiting Robert Morris, 79-39.

Devon Hall paced the Hoos with an 11-point first half that saw the Colonials hang tight with Virginia for the first 15 minutes, even leading the home team 13-12 at the 6:23 mark. UVA needed a 20-5 run to close the half in order to build the Cavaliers’ 14-point halftime lead. All eleven of Hall’s points came during the run.

Things didn't slow down much in the second half for Hall, who tied his career high for points (13) just two and a half minutes after halftime. He would finish with 13 as Tony Bennett gave plenty of minutes to his reserves and younger players.

Jack Salt also upped his career high, cracking double digits for the first time en route to finishing with 10 points. And Isaiah Wilkins got in on the career-high fun, too, dishing out six assists.

Isaiah Still led RMU with 16 points.

The Hoos’ next game is a cross-country trek to play Cal on Wednesday. Tip-off is set for 10 PM Eastern.

Until then, feast your eyes on this defensive clinic.
