(17) Virginia Wins Ninth Consecutive Game 

ThinkStock(CLEMSON, S.C.) --  No. 17 Virginia is on a roll.

Joe Harris scored 16 points, including a clutch three-pointer late in the second half, and the 17th-ranked Cavaliers built their longest ACC win streak in 32 years by topping Clemson 63-58 on Saturday.

Virginia (21-5) improved to 12-1 in ACC play and snapped a four-game losing streak at Clemson.

K.J. McDaniels led the Tigers (15-9, 6-6) with 24 points, but he fouled out in the final few seconds.  His three-pointer with 20.7 seconds remaining helped Clemson close to 59-58, but Malcolm Brogdon sank two foul shots as Virginia held on for the win.

"It does get to a point where we've got all step up as a team," Tigers forward Austin Ajukwa said after McDaniels was the team's only player to score in double figures.  "One person can't do everything. We've got to step up and fill our roles."
