No. 1 Virginia avoids 2nd straight huge NCAA tourney upset

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) This time, Virginia was not one-and-done against a 16 seed.

It looked possible, at least through the first half, as the Cavaliers were tested in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. Down 14 points in the first half Friday against Gardner-Webb, another early exit was quite possible.

Shades of UMBC all over again? Not quite.
