UVA Pulls Away from Miami for 12th Straight Win

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — London Perrantes scored a career-high 15 points and No. 12 Virginia opened the second half with a 16-5 run in a 65-40 victory over Miami on Wednesday night, the Cavaliers’ 12th consecutive win.

Perrantes hit all four of his 3-point attempts and Malcolm Brogdon also scored 15 points for Virginia (24-5, 15-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). The victory was Virginia’s school-record 17th straight at home in conference play and assured them of one of the top two seeds in next month’s conference tournament.

Erik Swoope scored 13 points and Rion Brown had 12 for Miami (14-14, 5-10). The defending ACC regular season and tournament champions shot just 26 percent (12 of 46) and had their modest two-game winning streak snapped.

It happened, as it has so often this season for Virginia, with a big burst.
