03/22/2014

NCAA Coastal Carolina Virginia BasketballRALEIGH, NC – No. 1-seeded Virginia overcame a tenacious performance by 16th-seeded Coastal Carolina and a five-point halftime deficit to advance to the round of 32 as the ACC champions were tested from the outset by an inspired Chanticleers squad. But 60% three-point shooting in the second half by the Cavaliers brought them back and eventually quieted the underdog cheers in PNC Arena, allowing the East’s top seed to advance another day.

Badou Diagne and Warren Gillis combined for 27 points in the loss, while sophomore Anthony Gill paced the Cavaliers with 17 points and five rebounds.

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