#5 UVa Men's Basketball Falls 75-69 in OT at Maryland
The loss snapped UVa's school-record 13 game winning streak
The #5 Virginia men's basketball team lost 75-69 in overtime at Maryland in its regular season finale Sunday, ending a school record 13 game winning streak for the Cavaliers.
A win for the 'Hoos would have set the all-time ACC mark for conference wins in a single season.
Sophomore Malcolm Brogdon says, "It's not that we were arrogant, but we were living on a high. We hadn't felt the feeling of a loss in a while. It's a good thing being knocked down a little bit, and humbled before postseason play."
Senior Joe Harris adds, "If we come in like we did today, and don't play up to our standard, or what we expect, those losses hurt. Those losses sting."
Four different players scored in doubles for UVa (25-6, 16-2 ACC), who were led by Anthony Gill's 15 points.
Gill hit a game-tying basket with one-second remaining in regulation to tie the game at 64-64, and send it to overtime.
The Wahoos never held the lead in the extra session.
Seth Allen scored 20 points to pace the Terps in their final regular season game in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
UVa head coach Tony Bennett says, "We pride ourselves on trying to be a team that takes away the lane first, and then makes people shoot contested shots. We certainly had our difficulties."
Virginia will be the #1 seed in the ACC Tournament.
The Cavaliers have a bye in the first two rounds, and will open up play against the winner of 8-seed FSU and 9-seed Maryland Friday at noon in Greensboro, NC.
