CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Tyrese Rice and Rakim Sanders scored 20 points each as Boston College beat Virginia 80-70 on Wednesday night.

The Eagles (18-6, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 42-22 at halftime after limiting the Cavaliers to six first-half field goals.

Virginia (7-11, 1-6) lost its sixth straight despite a career-high 32 points by freshman Sylven Landesberg. Jeff Jones added 10 points, but on 2-for-11 shooting as the Cavaliers guards, besides Landesberg, were a combined 6-for-34 from the field. Virginia shot just 33.3 percent overall (23-for-69).

Boston College shot 51.1 percent (24-for-47) and would have put the game away early if not for their 20 turnovers that led to 23 points for the Cavaliers.
