Topic - Joe Harris
Malcolm Brogdon talked before No. 12 Virginia's final home game about making it a success for seniors Joe Harris, Akil Mitchell and even former walk-on Thomas Rogers, the first building blocks in Tony Bennett's remaking of the Cavaliers.
Jim Boeheim had no concerns when No. 12 Virginia pounded the ball inside to Akil Mitchell and Mike Tobey in the first half against Syracuse's zone.
As it has so often this season, Virginia took command with a second-half spree fed in part by its defense, and in part by a celebrating sell-out crowd, many of whom stood throughout the second half.
The 12th-ranked Cavaliers can notch their second outright ACC crown Saturday with a win against No. 4 Syracuse in the biggest game in Charlottesville in decades, probably since Ralph Sampson was a Wahoo.
Virginia guard Malcolm Brogdon did a double take when told that the Cavaliers have only won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship outright once in their history, and that it was 33 years ago.
London Perrantes scored a career-high 15 points in a 65-40 victory over Miami for Virginia's 12th consecutive win.

Joe Harris scored 16 points, including a critical 3-pointer with about three minutes left, and No. 17 Virginia won its ninth straight Atlantic Coast Conference game for the first time in 32 years with a 63-58 victory over Clemson on Saturday.
Clemson coach Brad Brownell has waited for some timely offense to go with the Tigers' staunch defense. Unfortunately, No. 17 Virginia accomplished that blend on Saturday.
Joe Harris hasn't had to score as much this season for No. 17 Virginia as he did a year ago. When the Cavaliers had their hands full with Maryland on Monday night, though, Harris showed he can still carry the day.
Three victories in four games had Maryland feeling better about things than it did during a stretch of four losses in five games, and Dez Wells wasn't going to let a 61-53 loss at No. 17 Virginia ruin it.
Malcolm Brogdon finished 16 points for Virginia (17-5, 8-1), which maintained sole possession of second place in the ACC. The Cavaliers have won five consecutive games since losing at Duke on Jan. 13.
Pitt remains in search of a quality win for its NCAA tournament resume.
