Joe Harris scored 22 points, Justin Anderson added 17 and Virginia beat Maryland 80-69 Sunday to solidify its hold on third place in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Cavaliers (17-6, 7-3) never trailed after halftime in their fourth straight win over the Terrapins (17-7, 5-6). Virginia improved to 3-4 on the road, 2-3 in the ACC.
Despite committing 16 turnovers, the Cavaliers shot 58 percent from beyond the arc (11 for 19) and finished with a 34-29 rebounding advantage. Virginia has won three in a row at Maryland for the first time since 1991-93.
The victory gave the Cavaliers a one-game lead over idle North Carolina and got them within a half-game of Duke, which faced Boston College on Sunday night.
