Strong Second Half Lifts Cavaliers Over NC State 59-47

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Mike Scott scored 15 points and Virginia held North Carolina State scoreless for more than 7 minutes on the way to a 59-47 victory Wednesday night.

Virginia (14-6, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) regained a share of first place in the conference with No. 10 Duke, and completed a season sweep of the series with the Wolfpack.

North Carolina State (14-9, 2-6) led 28-25 at halftime, but managed just 19 points in the second half, none during a stretch when Virginia turned a 32-29 deficit into a 40-32 lead.
