CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Malcolm Brogdon scored 19 points and No. 2 Virginia assured itself at least a share of the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season championship with a 69-57 victory against Virginia Tech on Saturday.
The Cavaliers (27-1, 15-1) started the day with a two-game lead against second-place Duke with three games remaining in the regular season. One more victory will give them back-to-back regular season titles. Their eighth straight victory also matched the 1981-82 squad for the best start in program history.
Adam Smith scored 19 to lead Virginia Tech (10-19, 2-14). The undermanned Hokies lost their fifth straight overall and their seventh straight in the series. Ahmed Hill added 10 points for the Hokies.
