The Cards fell to 20-13 and will wait until Sunday night to find out if they have done enough to earn a spot in the field of 68.

With the win, UVA advances to the semifinals against the victor of the Boston College/Clemson game, which was originally scheduled to tip-off at 2 p.m. Thursday. Kyle Guy, who started and played with a brace on his left knee because of a sprained medial collateral ligament he sustained last Saturday, led tournament top seed U.Va. with 19 points.
