A win's a win, I guess, but this one shouldn't have been this close:
Sylven Landesberg hit a 15-footer with 2.2 seconds left Monday night, lifting Virginia to a 69-67 victory against North Carolina-Wilmington.
Virginia (12-4) won its eighth straight, its longest winning streak since the start of the 2003-04 season, but had to make a late comeback to do it.
Wilmington (6-12) trailed before a 21-4 run gave it a 61-58 lead with 3:58 to play. The visitors were ahead 64-60 with 2:57 left before Virginia rescued itself with a 9-3 run.
Jerome Meyinsse had a career-high 14 points, and Mike Scott added 12.
Okay, let's take the win (that's 12, two more than last year's team had!) and get back to ACC play. Next up: Wake Forest, in Winston-Salem. I'm thinking about going to that game. Stay tuned.
