VIRGINIA 80, OLD DOMINION 76

Sean Singletary scored six points in the waning seconds to give the Wahos an 80-76 victory over Old Dominion in the quarterfinals of the College Basketball Invitational on Monday.

A 3-pointer by Singletary with six seconds left tied the score at 75-75. Singletary then hit a layup and hit a free throw after a steal with four seconds left to give Virginia the lead for good at 78-75.

The Monarchs (18-16) had a chance to come back with three seconds left after Jonathan Adams made a free throw to cut Virginia's lead to 78-76. But Adams turned the ball over and Ben Finney fouled Virginia's Calvin Baker. Baker hit two free throws to seal the win.

Singletary finished with 22 points.
