CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) – Malcolm Brogdon scored 20 points and Anthony Gill had two big baskets late as No. 13 Virginia squandered most of a 13-point lead and then held on to beat Clemson 69-62 on Tuesday night.

The Cavaliers (14-4, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 52-39 after a 17-4 run with 9 minutes left, then saw the Tigers close within 55-53 with about 3 1/2 minutes remaining. But Gill scored on a putback after a miss by Brogdon, then took a feed from Brogdon moments later for a fast-break dunk that built the margin back up to 59-53.

The Tigers (12-7, 5-2), seeking their sixth consecutive victory and third straight over a ranked team, got back within 62-59 on a 3-pointer by Jordan Roper and three free throws by Jaron Blossomgame with 1:36 to play, but Brogdon made two free throws with 30.7 seconds for the Cavaliers.

Gill finished with 12 points despite foul trouble for Virginia while Devon Hall had 11 and Isaiah Wilkins 10.

Blossomgame made four 3-pointers and scored 23 for the Tigers and Landry Nnoko added 15
