LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Malcolm Brogdon and Anthony Gill each scored 13 points and No. 11 Virginia used stifling defense to rout No. 16 Louisville 63-47 on Saturday for its fourth straight victory.

The Cavaliers (17-4, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) needed no late-game heroics after rallying from 10 points down in the final 1:23 and beating Wake Forest 72-71 Wednesday on Darius Thompson's 3-pointer at the buzzer. They were simply thorough on both ends, holding the Cardinals to season lows in shooting (33 percent) and points nearly a year after losing 52-47 to Virginia last year in Charlottesville.

The Cavaliers also shot 58 percent from the field.

Louisville (17-4, 6-2 ACC) committed 18 turnovers in having its four-game winning streak snapped. Reserves Ray Spalding and Deng Adel each 12 points for the Cardinals, who often trailed by 20 points until the final minute. Leading scorers Damion Lee and Trey Lewis combined for just 10 points.
