Brogdon finished 16 points for Virginia (17-5, 8-1), which maintained sole possession of second place in the ACC. The Cavaliers have won five consecutive games since losing at Duke on Jan. 13.

Pitt (18-4, 6-3) lost consecutive games for the first time this season and fell into a third-place tie with Duke in the conference standings. The Panthers have lost three of their past five after opening with a 16 wins in their first 17 games.

Pitt freshman Jamel Artis led the Panthers with 11 points, but he missed a wide open layup with 10 seconds remaining after an offensive rebound.

Neither team held more than a four-point lead at any time throughout the game in a matchup of two of the ACC's top defensive teams.

The score was tied at 41 when Cameron Wright made a 3-pointer as the shock clock expired for a 44-41 lead with 6:52 remaining. Wright fumbled a pass, picked the ball off his shoetops and released in one awkward motion to make an improbable shot much to the dismay of Virginia coach Tony Bennett.

Virginia did not let the bad luck affect their psyche. The Cavaliers tied the score again after London Perrantes made two free throws with 4:47 to go to make it 44-44. The score was tied 17 times in the game and changed hands seven times.

The first half was tight throughout with neither team holding more than a three-point lead at any time. Pitt took a 23-21 lead into halftime after James Robinson stole the ball from Justin Anderson and fed Cameron Wright for a layup with one second remaining in the half.

Both teams had their struggles offensively in the first 20 minutes as they both were 9 for 24 from the field.
