Young Cavs rally big in second half
The hot-shooting ‘Hoos made 10 of their 13 three-point attempts on the game, but even with their marksmanship trailed by as many as 13 points in the first half and were down 47-37 early in the second half.
A three-pointer by senior forward Will Sherill gave Virginia its first lead since the opening minute of the game at 49-48 with 13:23 left. The long run was capped by a Mustapha Farrakhan layup that made it 66-54 six minutes later.
Farrakhan had a career-high 23 points, including 14 in the first half, when the senior guard hit all four of his three-point attempts and almost single-handedly kept the Cavs in the game.
Freshman Joe Harris led UVa. (4-3) with 24 points.
Trevor Mbakwe had 18 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks for Minnesota (6-1).
