Q: What’s weirder than five Duke starters fouling out?
A: Virginia winning an ACC road game.

Lo and behold, lookie here!

Mamadi Diane scored 20 points, including a key 3-pointer with 45 seconds left, and Virginia snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 79-74 win over BC on Sunday.

Sean Singletary, the team's leading scorer at 19.0 points per game coming into play Sunday, did score 16 points, but he felt like his playmaking would pay off like it did in the end.

Laurynas Mikalauskas had 13 points and Mike Scott 11 for the Cavaliers (12-12, 2-9 ACC). Virginia's only other ACC win was also against BC -- 84-66 at home on Jan. 19.

"For me, it's a relief," Virginia coach Dave Leitao said. "It's been a long four weeks. It's a joy for them."

Tyrese Rice led the Eagles (13-11, 4-7) with 28 points on 11-for-24 shooting. Tyrelle Blair added 11 points and Shamari Spears 10 for BC.
