How do you shut down an upset bid? Virginia is on a 22-5 run to open the second half, while Gardner Webb has 8 turnovers through 8 minutes after just 4 in the first half. Hoos seem to have pried a 10,000-pound gorilla off their backs at halftime.

No. 1 Virginia seems to have found an answer against No. 16 Gardner-Webb: attack the paint. The length of Diakite and Hunter are too much for the undersized underdogs.

Heading into the half, No. 1 Virginia trails No. 16 Gardner-Webb, 36-30. But it could have been worse for the program that lost in historic fashion to UMBC a year ago. If the lackluster defense and turnovers had continued for Virginia, the Gardner-Webb lead would be much more.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

It feels as if No. 1 Virginia is starting to gain some composure after a rocky start against No. 16 Gardner-Webb, playing better defense and taking care of the ball better on offense. The Cavaliers still trail, 30-23, with less than 4 minutes remaining in the half, but at least there's some optimism for Tony Bennett and his coaching staff to cling to.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

No. 1 Virginia has no one to blame for its rough start against No. 16 Gardner-Webb, with six turnovers in the first nine minutes of play. The Cavaliers, which became the first one-seed to lose to a 16-seed a year ago, trail 17-10.
