CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Malcolm Brogdon and Joe Harris each scored 16 points as Virginia sent North Carolina to another Atlantic Coast Conference loss, 76-61 Monday night.

The Cavaliers (14-5, 5-1) opened a 15-point lead early in the second half. Justin Anderson had 13 points as Virginia extended its best start in league play since the 1982-83 team also opened 5-1.

Kennedy Meeks scored 15 points and James Michael McAdoo had 11 for North Carolina (11-7, 1-4). The Tar Heels avoided the first 0-4 ACC start in team history by beating Boston College in their last game, but trailed almost throughout against the Cavaliers.
