College Basketball Roundup: Collision Mars No. 2 Virginia's Win over Florida State

Article excerpt

Anthony Gill scored 13 points, Darion Atkins had 11 and No. 2 Virginia overcame a frightening collision of two of its players and a slow start to beat visiting Florida State 51-41 on Sunday night.

The game took a frightening turn for Virginia (25-1, 13-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) with just under 15 minutes to play when Malcolm Brogdon and London Perrantes, the starting backcourt, collided on defense. Perrantes stayed on the floor for a few minutes with a gash on his face as he and Brogdon were attended to on the court. They eventually left the court and headed to the locker room for further attention.

The Cavaliers led 31-28 at the time of the collision, and fell behind at 37-36 with 10:33 left on a basket by Jarquez Smith.

Brogdon returned a short time later with a bandage over his left eye. Perrantes' return to the bench came several minutes later and Virginia gradually pulled away.
