CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Kyle Guy scored 13 points to lead five Virginia players in double figures, and the No. 14 Cavaliers used strong perimeter shooting to beat East Carolina 76-53 on Tuesday night.
Virginia (8-1) had little trouble bouncing back from Saturday’s loss to then-No. 25 West Virginia. After trailing 16-15 with 9:26 remaining in the first half, the Cavaliers ended the period on a 27-4 run.
The spurt included seven straight made 3-pointers, with three coming from Guy.
A former Mr. Basketball in Indiana, Guy was held out for the final 11:27 during the loss to the Mountaineers. He logged 21 minutes Tuesday, sparking Virginia’s early barrage from long range.
The Cavaliers finished 9 of 21 from beyond the arc, taking advantage of East Carolina’s 2-3 zone.
