Harris Leads Virginia To 60-54 Win Over Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Joe Harris scored 22 points to lead Virginia in a 60-54 win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge on Wednesday night.

Darion Atkins scored 14 for the Cavaliers (5-2), while Akil Mitchell added 11.

Ben Brust led Wisconsin (4-3) with 15 points, while Jared Berggren added 12.

Harris was intentionally fouled with just less than a minute left and converted both free throws to put the Cavaliers up 57-50.

Berggren then slammed home a miss, and Virginia committed a turnover as the Badgers went to a full-court press. Berggren hit a pair of free throws to pull Wisconsin within 57-54 with 34.4 seconds left, and the Badgers fouled Mitchell in the full-court press.

He converted the first, but missed the second.

Wisconsin struggled to get a shot off with Brust finally creating contact on a 3-point attempt with 5 seconds left. Mitchell converted two free throws.
