Virginia finally gets easy NCAA win 63-51 over Oklahoma

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Virginia coach Tony Bennett made a last-minute change in his starting lineup and the top-seeded Cavaliers finally breezed through an NCAA Tournament game to make their first Sweet 16 in three years.

Bennett opted for Mamadi Diakite to start instead of Jack Salt against Oklahoma and the junior scored 14 points and had nine rebounds to lead the Cavaliers to a 63-51 win on Sunday night.

"Starting is big to me, it's a big challenge," Diakite said. "(Coach) is telling you, `OK, you have the responsibility to help the team, and we're trusting you.'"
