No. 19 Virginia Holds Off NC State 61-60

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Mike Scott scored 18 points to help No. 19 Virginia beat North Carolina State 61-60 on Saturday night.

Joe Harris and Sammy Zeglinski each added 12 for the Cavaliers (17-3, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who shot 60 percent in the first half to take the lead and then turned away a second-half rally for the road win.

Virginia led by 10 with about 6 1/2 minutes left before the Wolfpack (15-7, 4-3) pushed back. Scott Wood shook off a game's worth of shooting struggles to bury a 3-pointer off a loose rebound to cut the deficit to 61-60 with 46.3 seconds to go, then Zeglinski missed a stepback jumper with the shot clock winding down to give the ball back to the Wolfpack with a chance to win.

But after a timeout with 7.8 seconds left, Lorenzo Brown managed a desperate 3-pointer that missed everything, ending the game.
