JOE HARRIS (Jim Z Rider/US Presswire)
VIRGINIA 67, Oregon (Ducks, 19,534 students, Eugene, OR) 54 – The Wahoos are a different and much better team with Mike Scott on the floor.  The senior forward scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead the Virginia men's basketball team to a victory over the Ducks on Sunday.

The double-double was Scott's fourth of the season and the 28th of his career.

The victory was the seventh in a row for the Cavaliers and improved their record to 9-1 on the season. The loss dropped Oregon's record to 6-3. UVa is 9-1 for the first time since the 2003-04 season.

Sophomore guard Joe Harris scored 15 points and had five rebounds for Virginia, while junior guard Jontel Evans had 12 points, five assists, four rebounds and one steal. Senior guard Sammy Zeglinski and freshman guard Malcolm Brogdon added nine points for the Cavaliers.

BOSTON COLLEGE 75, Bryant (Bulldogs, 3,614 students, Smithfield, RI) 55 – Freshman Lonnie Jackson scored a career-high 26 points to lead Boston College past Bryant, 75-55 at Conte Forum.

Jackson went 8-for-13 from the field and 7-for-11 from beyond the arc. He is the first BC player to hit seven 3-pointers in a game since Tyrese Rice did it against North Carolina on March 1, 2008. Jackson also hauled in five rebounds.

WAKE FOREST 67, Gardner-Webb (runnin' Rebels, 4,300 students, Boiling Springs, NC) 59 –  The Demon Deacons improved to 7-4 on the season behind a career night from senior center Ty Walker, who tied his career high with 12 points and set a new personal best with nine rebounds. Junior guard C.J. Harris led Wake with 18 points, while sophomore forward Travis McKie chipped in with 15 points and seven rebounds.

Freshman guard Chase Fischer helped the Deacs close out the win with five late free throws to finish with 11 points in front of a home crowd of 6,717.

FLORIDA STATE 77, Loyola Marymount (Lions, 5,797 students, Los Angeles, CA) 61 – After a stretch of three games in with the 'Noles sustained 18, 21 and 26 turnovers, respectfully, Florida State tied a season-low with 16 giveaways against the Lions (6-5).

While FSU was doing its best to keep the numbers low in the turnover category, senior Bernard James was doing the opposite on offense and on the glass.

For the second game in a row, James registered a double-double in points and rebounds. His team-high 17 points accompanied his game-high 12 rebounds as James earned his fifth double-double of the season despite a 3-for-12 mark from the free-throw line.

Playing against the home-state Lions, California native Michael Snaer added 12 points and Xavier Gibson had 10 points and seven rebounds.
