Jay Huff tied his career high with 18 points and No. 22 Virginia rolled to a 61-49 victory against Boston College in an Atlantic Coast Conference game on Saturday afternoon in Chestnut Hill, Mass.

Sam Hauser had 17 points and 10 rebounds for his third straight double-double and Kihei Clark chipped in 12 points for Virginia, which shot 45.3 percent (24 of 53) from the field and committed just seven turnovers.
DeMarr Langford Jr. scored 14 points and Rich Kelly added 10 for the Eagles (2-9, 0-5 ACC), who dropped their fourth straight game. CJ Felder had nine points and nine boards.
