CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Freshman Syvlen Landesberg scored 22 points and made two free throws with 29 seconds left to help Virginia edge Radford 68-66 Friday night.

The Cavaliers (3-0) trailed 29-27 at halftime and by as many as four points in the second half. Landesberg scored 10 points in the final 8:08 minutes of the game, including a pair of free throws to give Virginia the lead at 67-66.
