CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Akil Mitchell had career highs with 14 points and 16 rebounds and freshman Mike Tobey scored 17 Saturday as Virginia beat Seattle 83-43.

The Cavaliers (2-2) led 44-13 at halftime and cruised, allowing coach Tony Bennett to give plenty of playing time to his freshman.

The Redhawks (1-1), who won at John Paul Jones Arena two years ago, shot 20 percent in the first half (5 of 25) and only kept the game as close as it was because the Cavaliers had a tough time breaking their full-court press. Virginia had 19 turnovers, but Seattle turned them into just 10 points

Deshaun Sunderhaus led the Redhawks with nine points and Sterling Carter and Chad Rasmussen each had eight.

Freshman Justin Anderson added 11 points for Virginia, including two highlight reel dunks, and fellow freshman Evan Nolte scored 10. In all, the Cavaliers got 50 points from their five freshmen.

Seattle, meantime, finished shooting 25.4 percent (15 of 59) and was outrebounded 41-29.

Virginia has played without a true point guard so far this season. Starter and team captain Jontel Evans underwent surgery in October and backup Malcolm Brogdon has recovered slowly from surgery last year.

Evans played three minutes in Virginia's loss to Delaware on Tuesday night, but developed soreness in his right foot and did not dress Saturday. The game did mark the debut of freshman guard Teven Jones for the Cavaliers. He scored four in 25 minutes.

Seattle led 6-3, then it all went downhill as Virginia scored the next nine points. The rest of the half included runs of 11, 10 and nine points for the Cavaliers, who got scoring from eight players before intermission. Half of their 44 at the break came from freshman, led by Tobey with 10 and Nolte with eight.
