CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Anthony Gill scored 18 points and Joe Harris had 16 as Virginia beat Navy 67-42 on Tuesday night.

Mike Tobey added 13 points and eight rebounds and Malcolm Brogdon scored 13 for Virginia (3-1), which won its second straight since a 59-56 home loss to No. 10 VCU. The Cavaliers led 32-17 at halftime and never let the Midshipmen make a run, and both coaches substituted liberally in the closing minutes.

The Midshipmen (2-3), facing Virginia for the first time since 1974, got 15 points from Brandon Venturini but shot just 33 percent (16-48) while allowing the Cavaliers to convert 56.6 percent (30-53).

Harris, who scored just one point in a victory against Davidson on Saturday, hit a 3-pointer 3:09 into the game. After a back-and-forth first 12 minutes, Virginia pulled ahead with a 13-0 run as the Midshipmen went scoreless for nearly six minutes, at one point committing six turnovers in a row without a shot.

The run included a trip downcourt for Virginia on which Darion Atkins was fouled, missed both shots and Harris rebounded for the Cavaliers and also was fouled. Harris then missed both of his free throws as well, the start of the night on which Virginia converted just four of 11 attempts from the line.

Navy shot just 30.4 percent in the half (7-23), and Virginia shot 57.7 percent (15-26).

Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett continued fiddling with his starting lineup, replacing Gill with Mike Tobey, and the 6-foot-11 Tobey scored Virginia's first two baskets against the undersized Middies.
