CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -

An early 22-5 run and 18 turnovers that led to 26 Cavalier points were too much for Florida State to overcome, as they fall 78-66 on the road at Virginia.


Joe Harris' 18 points led the Cavaliers (13-5, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won 62-50 at Florida State on Jan. 4. The sweep is the first for the Cavaliers since the 2000-01 season.
   
Okaro White and Aaron Thomas scored 15 each for Florida State (12-5, 3-2). The Seminoles arrived second in the ACC defensively, allowing teams to make just 36.3 percent of their field goal attempts, but the Cavaliers shot better than 55 percent in the first half in bolting to 45-26 lead by halftime.
   
The Seminoles trailed by as many as 21 in the second half, and got no closer than 12, including in the final minute when Virginia's Justin Anderson was assessed a technical foul for hanging on the rim after a dunk.
   
After the game, as the Seminoles lined up to head for their locker room, words were exchanged and the teams came together, but coaches seemed to control the situation and the teams went to their locker rooms without incident.
