The Virginia men's basketball team earned their second win in three days, defeating Norfolk State 66-56 Monday night at John Paul Jones Arena.
Justin Anderson led UVa with 14 points and eight rebounds, while Joe Harris had 12 points and 7 rebounds. With the win, Virginia improved to 3-0 all-time vs. Norfolk State and 21-0 all-time against teams from the MEAC.
"To get a couple wins like this in a row, Northern Iowa is another good team and heading into Tennessee, we've got some bigger teams coming up so it's a big win for our confidence, a big win for our team," said senior forward Akil Mitchell, who did not start but finished with 8 points and 7 rebounds.
The Cavaliers are now 9-3 on the season, with one non-conference matchup left on their schedule before ACC play begins Jan. 4. Next up, UVa goes on the road to face Tennessee on Dec. 30, where tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
