Last week, UVA needed some major magic in the last second to beat Louisville. No such drama in the opening round of the ACC Tournament as the Cavaliers beat the Cardinals 75-58.
The Hoos jumped to a 17 point first half lead. Louisville trimmed it to 4 with 8 minutes to go in the game. That's when Mamadi Diakite stepped up to score 6 straight and UVA was never threatened again.
Kyle Guy was the Cavaliers leading scorer with 19.
Next up for Virginia, it's the semifinals Friday night vs Clemson.
