London Perrantes scored 13 points and recorded four assists in the second half to help Virginia complete its comeback on Tuesday night. The tenth ranked 'Hoos won their seventh straight game by beating West Virginia 70-54 in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden.
In the beginning, however, it was Anthony Gill who kept Virginia alive in the first half. The Cavaliers trailed by as many as 12 points early, but the senior forward recorded his fourth career double-double, 20 points and 12 rebounds to stay within striking distance.
UVA had 19 turnovers in the game, but in the end they were efficient. The 'Hoos shot just under 74 percent for the second half, 63 percent in the game, while the Mountaineers ended on a scoring drought of 3:22.
