For the first time since 1995, the Virginia men's basketball team is headed to the semifinals of the ACC Tournament. The Cavaliers topped Florida State, 64-51, Friday in the tournament quarterfinals.
Joe Harris tied his season-high in scoring, leading UVa with 20 points on 7-for-12 shooting, including 3-of-6 from three-point range. Anthony Gill also shot the ball well for the Cavaliers, going 6-for-9 and finishing with 16 points, 5 rebounds, and two blocks.
After a close first half, Virginia took a five point lead into the halftime break and never trailed in the second half. Behind a strong performance from Gill, UVa's bench was able to outscore Florida State's 26-9 on the way to their third win this season over the Seminoles.
The top-seeded Cavaliers move on to face the winner of Friday afternoon's matchup between 5th-seeded Pittsburgh and 4th-seeded North Carolina. UVa beat UNC, 76-61, at John Paul Jones Arena on Jan. 20 and went on the road to beat Pitt, 48-45, on Feb. 2.
