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

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

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

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

Justin Anderson added 11 points for Virginia and Evan Nolte had 10.

Seattle shot 25.4 percent (15 of 59) and was outrebounded 41-29.

"From the beginning of the game, they played defense with a great amount of toughness, effort and energy," Redhawks coach Cameron Dollar said. "They didn't allow us to get into the paint, and they contested shots. ... They just brought the fight to us and were tougher."
