UVA's Tough Defense Halts Florida State

Posted: Updated:

The Virginia men's basketball team blew out Florida State 56-36 Saturday -  that's the third fewest points allowed by the 'Hoos at home since 1986.

Going into the game, FSU was averaging 39-percent from beyond the arc but the Cavaliers held the Seminoles to shooting 1-of-15 from three point range.

Justin Anderson had 13 points and 3 blocks against the 'Noles. Anderson said, "We knew that they were going to put up a lot of threes and our scouting report was you know get up on them on the catch - put some pressure up on them on the catch our bigs did a great job hedging I think on those ball screens not letting their guards get a lot of good looks."

Point Guard, Jontel Evans added, "They're firing away you know and I just feel like they wasted all their three's last year on us so they couldn't hit ."
