CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Joe Harris scored 17 points and Virginia used a 22-4 run late in the first half and stifling defense throughout to beat Florida State for the first time in eight tries, 56-36 on Saturday.

Akil Mitchell added 13 points for the Cavaliers (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led 33-15 at halftime -- the fifth time this season they have held an opponent under 20 first-half points. It was the first time they have done it in an ACC game since they led Clemson 28-14 on Feb. 10, 1996.

Michael Snaer scored nine points to lead the Seminoles (10-7, 2-2), who shot 37 percent, missed 14 of 15 3-point attempts and committed 18 turnovers that Virginia turned into 20 points.

The games was delayed for several minutes with 3:58 remaining when Terrance Shannon dropped to the floor after appearing to slam his head into Evan Nolte's hip in a scramble under the basket.
