CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — No. 6 Virginia (21-5, 13-4 ACC) had its four-game win streak snapped on the road Wednesday night (Feb. 22) as the Cavaliers dropped a 63-48 decision to Boston College (14-15, 7-11 ACC) at Conte Forum. The Eagles’ win also halted UVA’s four-game win streak in the series.

UVA shot 32 percent from the field, including 19 percent from 3-point range, while the Eagles shot 52 percent. The Cavaliers’ 48 points also marked a season low.

Jayden Gardner led the effort for Virginia as he recorded a game-high 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting and added five rebounds.

Despite committing 11 turnovers, the Eagles led 28-21 at the half after BC connected on 12 of its 23 field goal attempts, while UVA shot just 8 of 29 overall, including 1 of 10 from beyond the arc.

Gardner, who led UVA in scoring at the break, recorded all eight of his first-half points in the first seven minutes of play before cooling for the rest of the period. The Eagles grasped their then-largest lead of the half [26-17] with 2:43 to go in the half. Kihei Clark registered the final score of the half on a made layup with 26 seconds remaining to cut the Eagles’ lead to seven before time expired.

After Gardner made the first bucket of the second half, BC embarked on a 10-2 run to push its lead to double digits, 38-25. The Eagles’ scoring spree was broken up by Isaac McKneely (6 points, 4 rebounds), who gave UVA a little bit of life after burying a pair of triples on back-to-back trips down the floor. A few possessions later, Gardner knocked down two consecutive baskets to shrink the Eagles’ lead to seven [44-37], but that was as close as the Cavaliers would get the rest of the way. BC connected on its last four shots of the contest, including a pair of 3s, to close out the game.

The Eagles scored 20 points in the paint in the second half, while UVA managed just eight.

The Cavaliers travel to North Carolina (16-11, 8-8 ACC) on Saturday (Feb. 28). Tipoff at Smith Center is set for 6 p.m. on ESPN.
