GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Sammy Zeglinski scored 16 of his season-high 21 points in the first half to help Virginia beat Boston College 68-62 on Thursday in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Mike Scott had 11 points and 13 rebounds for the ninth-seeded Cavaliers (15-15), who won their first game in a month and their first tournament game in four years. Virginia had lost nine straight heading into Greensboro, but pushed ahead late in the first half and led by as many as 11 points midway through the second half.

Virginia hadn't won a tournament game since beating Virginia Tech in the first round of the 2006 tournament in Greensboro.

Now the Cavaliers and first-year coach Tony Bennett are headed to Friday's quarterfinals to face fourth-ranked Duke, the tournament's top seed.

Rakim Sanders tied a season-high with 22 points for the eighth-seeded Eagles (15-16).
