#21 VIRGINIA 57, LSU 52 -- Sammy Zeglinski scored 17 points, including a big 3-pointer late in the game, to help No. 21 Virginia beat LSU Monday night.

Joe Harris added 14 points, also hitting a 3-pointer late, for the Cavaliers (13-1), who have won 11 straight games.

With their lead down to one, Zeglinski made his fourth 3 of the game to put the Cavaliers on top 51-47 with 3:25 remaining. A 3-pointer by Anthony Hickey again reduced Virginia's lead to a single point before Harris made his 3-pointer with 1:30 left.

The Tigers cut their deficit in half at 54-52 on a field goal by Justin Hamilton with 51 seconds remaining. LSU got the ball back when Ralston Turner blocked a shot by Harris and Hamilton grabbed the ball. However, Hamilton immediately lost the ball.

Game over.

Wofford 56, WAKE FOREST 52 -- Wake Forest battled back from a double-digit halftime deficit, but could not  overcome the Wofford Terriers at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum.

The Demon Deacons received a career-high tying 25-point effort from sophomore forward Travis McKie and a career best 12 rebounds by senior center Ty Walker. It wasn't enough, however, as the Deacons fell to 9-5 on the year and the Terriers took a game from Wake Forest for the first time since 1906 - the Deacons' inaugural intercollegiate season.

Wofford was paced by senior guards Brad Loesing and Kevin Giltner, who had 17 and 11 points respectively as the Terriers improved to 8-6 on the season.

MIAMI 99, UNC  Greensboro 89 -- Kenny Kadji scored 30 points to lead Miami past North Carolina-Greensboro Monday night.

The Hurricanes (9-4) withstood an upset bid by the Spartans, who have lost 10 straight.

UNC Greensboro (2-13) cut a 93-80 deficit with seven unanswered points late in the second half. David Williams' layup with 1:36 remaining ended the spurt and got the Spartans to within 93-87.

Durand Scott secured the Miami win with four free throws, finishing with 17 points.  With a pair of free throws in the second period, Scott became the 33rd Cane in history to top the 1,000 mark. 

Rhode Island 78, BOSTON COLLEGE 72 -- Freshman Ryan Anderson recorded his third double-double of the year with career highs in points (18) and rebounds (14) as Boston College lost to visiting Rhode Island in double overtime.

Anderson went 7-for-12 from the field and added three blocks and two steals. Freshmen Dennis Clifford and Lonnie Jackson both had 12 points, and classmates Jordan Daniels and Patrick Heckmann both had 11.
