Justin Anderson scored 14 points and Joe Harris had 12 Monday as Virginia overcame a sloppy performance and held off Norfolk State 66-56.

The Cavaliers (9-3), in their next-to-last tuneup before beginning Atlantic Coast Conference play, used a 20-5 run in the second half to take command after the Spartans rallied to pull even at 32.

Norfolk State (8-5), which lost to Virginia at John Paul Jones Arena last season in the opening round of the NIT, got 12 points from Pendarvis Williams and 10 from Marese Phelps, but the Spartans went scoreless for nearly 5 1/2 minutes as Virginia opened its lead and never got closer than seven.

Akil Mitchell, absent from the Cavaliers’ starting lineup for the first time since January 2012, added eight points and seven rebounds, and Anthony Gill scored all seven of his points in the second half.
