WAHOOS UPSET OPENING GAME OF ACC TOURNEY

Without leading scorer Sylven Landesberg who was suspended for academic reasons, Virginia found a way to end its nine-game losing streak by knocking off Boston College 68-62 in the first round of the ACC Tournament.

Sammy Zeglinski led the Cavs, scoring 16 of his season-high 21 points in the first half.

Mike Scott had 11 points and 13 rebounds for the ninth-seeded Cavaliers (15-15), who won their first game in a month and their first tournament game in four years. Virginia hadn’t won a tournament game since beating Virginia Tech in the first round of the 2006 tournament in Greensboro.

Now the Cavaliers and first-year coach Tony Bennett are headed to Friday’s quarterfinals to face fourth-ranked Duke, the tournament’s top seed.

Rakim Sanders tied a season-high with 22 points for the eighth-seeded Eagles (15-16).
