The Virginia Men’s Basketball Team earned a 62-50 win in Tallahassee Florida to improve to 10-4 (1-0 ACC) and ended a ten game losing streak on Florida State’s home floor.  Virginia gathered 17 offensive rebounds and only committed 6 turnovers to overcome poor free throw shooting and losing Joe Harris to a head injury for the majority of the game.  UVA Head Coach Tony Bennett told Dave Koehn, “We’re gonna have to win with toughness and defense…college basketball is funny…you can lose by 30 and then show up and beat a good physical Florida State Team.”
