CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Mike Scott scored 22 points, Sylven Landesberg had 20 and Virginia sent Texas-Pan American to its 10th consecutive loss Tuesday night, 72-53.

Texas-Pan American (1-15), whose only victory was by 61-50 against Chattanooga in the South Padre Island Invitational on Nov. 27, trailed 40-23 at halftime and never cut the deficit into single digits thereafter. The Broncs were led by Jared Maree with 14 points.
Sammy Zeglinski added 13 points and six assists for the Cavaliers, who were 56.6 percent from the field and were 7-for-12 from 3-point territory. Zeglinski made three 3s.
