Cavs Clobber The Heels 75-60

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Sylven Landesberg scored 29 points and Virginia ran off 18 unanswered points early in the second half to beat struggling North Carolina 75-60 on Sunday night.

Sammy Zeglinski added 19 points for the Cavaliers (13-6, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who regrouped from consecutive losses to earn another impressive victory under first-year coach Tony Bennett. Virginia had lost 63 of 68 meetings in Chapel Hill, but blew the game open by holding the Tar Heels without a field goal for nearly 8 minutes in front of a stunned Smith Center crowd.

While Landesberg led the offense, Zeglinski knocked down a pair of 3-pointers during the decisive run, which turned a 35-32 margin into a 21-point lead with 14:20 to play.

Virginia never let North Carolina (13-8, 2-4) back in it, maintaining a comfortable lead and shooting 52 percent for the game.

    It is so nice to see North Carolina getting the crap beat out of them almost every game. The only bad part is that they are not losing every game. Just goes to show that Roy Williams should have retired when he had the chance to leave the game with a winning reputation, now he will always be known as the loser at Carolina that just faded away. ha,ha,ha!!!
