Harris and Akil Mitchell combined for 55 of the Cavaliers' points as they celebrated the 11-year anniversary of their last victory over a top 5 team by doing it again on Thursday night.
Akil Mitchell's passport is getting a workout of late thanks to a bit of basketball-related travel.
Mike Scott and fellow fifth-year senior Sammy Zeglinski were seated with coach Tony Bennett between them when the team gathered to watch the NCAA selection show. When the Cavaliers heard their named called, Scott was the first to his feet.
This was bubble basketball at its finest, two flawed teams working to hide those blemishes just long enough to win.
With three games remaining in the regular season, Virginia finds itself in solid position to make the NCAA tournament.The Cavaliers can't coast, though, with all three games promising to be intense. Saturday afternoon is the biggest challenge of the bunch, with North Carolina paying a visit to John Paul Jones Arena.
Talking heads have debated all week whether Saturday's game is a "must win" for Virginia.
Mike Scott was able to tick off a list of players that he's been extra fired up to play during his time at Virginia.
It didn't take long for No. 19 Virginia to feel the loss of 7-foot Assane Sene.
During a 12-day break for exams, Virginia basketball coach Tony Bennett focused on a topic near and dear to his heart: defense.
Virginia guard Jontel Evans made a single misjudgment on an inbound pass, incorrectly figuring Mustapha Farrakhan would stay in one place. On its own, it would seem like no big deal. Put in context as the latest piece of the Cavaliers' massive last-minute meltdown, it was the final part of Miami's comeback from 10 points down with less than 40 seconds remaining.
"It's just great," senior point guard Jontel Evans said. "They're the reason we go so hard when we're here. We feed off their energy. They've been great. They've just been unbelievable this year. I've never seen support like this."
"That's unbelievable right there, that they never led in the game," Evans said.
