CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Justin Anderson scored a career-high 18 points and Virginia extended its home winning streak to 19 games Sunday with a 68-50 victory against St. John's in the second round of the NIT.
Fellow freshman Taylor Barnette added a career-high 13 points for Virginia (23-11) as first-year Cavaliers scored 46 points, including 15 during a pivotal 20-3 run in the first half. Barnette scored the last eight in a span of 90 seconds.
"We all just mesh together so well," Barnette said of the roster, which also includes freshmen Mike Tobey (10 points), Teven Jones (5) and Evan Nolte. "I've never been part of a team that's so together and that really helps out on the court."
