Wofford vs. Virginia: Cavaliers cruise to 74-39 victory

USA TODAY Sports

The Virginia Cavaliers picked up their 10th win of the college basketball season on Sunday afternoon, dominating Wofford in a 74-39 win. Freshman center Mike Tobey led the way for the Cavaliers with 19 points off the bench.

After a stunning loss at Old Dominion last Saturday, the Virginia Cavaliers needed a statement win heading into ACC play next weekend. They got it on Sunday, in a dominating 74-39 victory over Wofford.

From start to finish, the Cavaliers were simply better than the Terriers, taking a 14-point lead into halftime before outscoring Wofford, 43-22, after the break. Virginia had three players finish the afternoon in double figures, with Mike Tobey leading the way off the bench with 19 points and starters Joe Harris and Akil Mitchell adding 15 points apiece. Virginia improved to 10-3 with the victory, and Wofford fell to 6-7.

For Virginia, it was the statement win the team needed after that embarrassing loss. The Monarchs entered that game last weekend at just 1-10 before pulling off the 63-61 upset at home.

And with the victory over Wofford, the Cavaliers can now turn their attention to ACC play, which begins next weekend. Virginia will host North Carolina next Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET in the conference opener for both clubs.

Spencer Collins scored 17 points in a losing effort for Wofford.
