Third Round Highlights: (1) Virginia 78 – (8) Memphis 60

03/23/2014

NCAA Memphis Virginia BasketballRALEIGH, NC – Virginia put a shaky first game behind them and shot 56 percent from the field to cruise to a 78-60 victory against eighth-seeded Memphis and advance to the Sweet 16. Joe Harris led the Cavaliers with 16 points, while four other teammates reached double-digits as well. With the win, the Cavaliers advance to face Michigan State at Madison Square Garden, adding another marquee game for a school that hasn’t advanced this far in the tournament since 1995.

Austin Nichols scored 15 points for the Tigers, but with Geron Johnson next on the list with 11, Memphis was unable to keep pace with the No.1 seed.

Scott Graham and John Thompson called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
