(AP) - New No . 1 Virginia made sure the Miami Hurricanes were no Chaminade. The Cavaliers avoided an upset in their first game atop the rankings in 35 years, holding Miami 's starters to 28 percent shooting to win 59 - 50 .

The Hurricanes (18-7, 7-6) lost their second in a row, and lost at home for only the second time.

The Cavaliers climbed atop the poll this week and played as the top-ranked team for the first time since their memorable upset loss to Chaminade some 35 years ago. They mixed man-to-man and zone, and the Hurricanes had trouble making a shot against either defense, often settling for attempts from long range.

The Hurricanes threw up four airballs, and another clanked off the underside of the rim. Virginia shut down the Hurricanes' transition game, and they managed only four fast-break points.

Kyle Guy scored 13 points for the Cavaliers, who shot 46 percent. Ty Jerome had seven assists — one more than the Hurricanes.

Miami missed 10 consecutive shots during a 13-0 run by the Cavaliers that put them ahead 26-12. At halftime Miami was shooting 21 percent and trailing 27-16.
