Mamadi Diane scored 20 points and Sean Singletary scored 19 and had 10 assists Saturday night as Virginia snapped a three-game losing streak with an 84-66 victory against Boston College, and started a new JPJA winning streak.
The Cavaliers (11-5, 1-2 ACC), defending co-champions in the conference, got a much-needed victory after two blowout losses and then a heartbreaker at the buzzer against Virginia Tech left them reeling. Coach Dave Leitao even made them dress in the hallway for a few days, saying they didn't deserve the locker room. Ouch.
Boston College (12-5, 3-1) got 20 points from Tyrese Rice, a Richmond native and the ACC's second-leading scorer.
