Yesterday at University Hall in Charlottesville

KEY NUMBER

402-143 All-time record for Virginia at University Hall. The Cavaliers played their final regularly scheduled game at U-Hall to cap a 41-year run, but could have another home game or two in the NIT later this month.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Virginia came out of a timeout with 55 seconds left down 71-70. Cavaliers guard Sean Singletary appeared to call a timeout and began walking toward the bench, only to discover referee Karl Hess had called him for a five-second violation. Virginia took only one more shot the rest of the game, a J.R. Reynolds 3-pointer that missed badly.

QUOTABLE

“They still ask, ‘Do you have a ticket?’ I played here. Do I really need a ticket? Nothing’s changed.”

— Former Virginia star Ralph Sampson (1979-83) on seeing ushers who have worked at U-Hall since his playing days.

— Patrick Stevens
