CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Joe Harris scored 21 points and outscored Clemson by himself for most of the game Thursday night as Virginia used 1 of its best defensive efforts of the year to embarrass the Tigers 78-41.
Akil Mitchell added 16 points and Justin Anderson 14 as Virginia (16-6, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) avenged 1 of its worst performances of the season, a 59-44 loss at Clemson on Jan. 12.
The Tigers (12-10, 4-6), who shot 77% in the second half of that game against the nation's 10th-best field goal percentage defense (37.3%), had no such success on the Cavaliers' home floor. Not until Devin Booker's putback with 12:04 left made it 55-22 did they have more points than Harris.
The Tigers trailed 35-10 at halftime, the lowest scoring in a half against Virginia since Maryland did it in 1981, and became the eighth team to fail to score 20 points in a half against the Cavaliers.
