Game Notes: The game was Virginia’s first trip to Miami … the game was the furthest south the Cavaliers have ever played a NCAA game (the team played exhibition games further south during the team’s 2004 preseason trip to Brazil) … the Cavaliers were shutout for the second consecutive game … the Cavaliers are now winless in their last six games on the road (0-4-2), dating back to last season.
