Charlottesville, VA - Malcolm Brogdon tallied 18 points and No. 2 Virginia achieved its best 25-game record in school history by posting a 61-49 victory over Pittsburgh on Monday night.

The Cavaliers (24-1, 12-1 ACC) surpassed the 23-2 mark recorded by the 1980-81 squad and did so in typical methodical fashion, grinding out another win behind the nation's top-ranked scoring defense.

Pittsburgh entered the matchup having shot nearly 65 percent from the field in an 89-76 triumph over then-No. 12 North Carolina on Saturday, but struggled on the offensive end all evening long. The Panthers managed just 15 first-half points and were never able to overcome a double-digit deficit at the break.

Jamel Artis did finish with 20 points and eight rebounds after a big second half for the Panthers (17-10, 6-7 ACC), who had won four of their last five to put themselves back in the NCAA Tournament discussion.

Anthony Gill added 12 points for Virginia and London Perrantes had 10 along with six assists.
