Led by four players in double figures, including 19 points and 5 rebounds from Malcolm Brogdon, the Virginia Men’s Basketball team won its’ thirteenth straight game 75-56 over Syracuse to win their first regular season ACC title since 1981.  Virginia pulled away late with tough defense and three point shooting.  Tyler Ennis got in foul trouble late for Syracuse, and they had trouble offensively most of the day against UVA’s pack line defense.  Syracuse was held to 36% from the field, and 22% from three.  UVA will finish the regular season next Sunday against Maryland.
