Rohde, a transfer from St. Thomas and the Summit League’s top freshman last year, made three of Virginia’s nine 3-pointers, including one he banked in to beat the shot clock during the surge. All five starters for Virginia (6-1) scored in double figures, with Reece Beekman, Ryan Dunn and Jake Groves all scoring 12.

Henry Coleman III led Texas A&M (6-2) with 16 points and 14 rebounds. The Aggies’ point total was their lowest this season; they arrived averaging 79.3.

The Cavaliers led through most of the first half before the Aggies went ahead briefly. Dunn got Virginia the lead back with a 3-pointer to make it 27-26 at halftime, and the basket started what became the 17-2 run to put the Cavaliers ahead 41-28. Groves and Rohde both added 3-pointers in the run.


Texas A&M: The Aggies played without injured No. 3 scorer Tyrece Radford (13.0 ppg). They were without Radford and injured No. 2 scorer Henry Coleman III (14.2) in their game on Sunday when they came back from 21 points down to beat Iowa State 73-69, the largest comeback in program history.

Virginia: The Cavaliers did not attempt a free throw until Dunn made a pair with 8:44 to play and did not get a point from their reserves all game.


The Aggies don’t play again until next Wednesday when they host DePaul.

The Cavaliers are at home against ACC rival Syracuse on Saturday.
