Harris’ 19 lead No. 17 Virginia past Terps, 61-53

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Joe Harris scored 19 points and No. 17 Virginia stretched its winning streak to eight games by beating Maryland 61-53 on Monday night in the Terrapins’ last visit as an ACC rival.

Malcolm Brogdon added 14 points and Akil Mitchell had 13 for the Cavaliers (20-5, 11-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who continued their best start in conference play since the 1981-82 team opened 12-1.

Seth Allen scored 15 points and Dez Wells had 12 for Maryland (14-11, 6-6), which had won three of four.

The Terps and Cavaliers were tied at 35 when Harris scored on a drive.

After a block by Maryland, Justin Anderson soared at the other end to block a shot by Maryland’s Roddy Peters near the rim and saved the ball. He started a fast break that moments later was capped by Harris’ 3-pointer from the right corner, arousing a crowd that had grown quiet by the tight ballgame.

A dunk by Darion Atkins and Brogdon’s 17-footer pushed the lead to 44-35.
