CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia's perfect 10 is now a perfect 11.

The 'Hoos, ranked second in the nation, extended their win streak to 11 in a row with a 61-36 victory vs. 18th ranked Clemson Tuesday inside John Paul Jones Arena. The 36 points are not only the fewest allowed by UVA, the nation's top defensive team, all season - the 36 points allowed are the lowest ever for the Cavaliers against a ranked opponent.

Virginia, 19-and-1 overall, improves to 8-and-0 in ACC play for the first time since starting 12-and-0 in 1980-81. UVA is the league's lone team yet to drop a conference contest.

Up next for UVA, a Saturday date with Duke - ranked fourth in the country. The game, scheduled for a 2:00 p.m. tip-off at Cameron Indoor Stadium, will be broadcast live on News 3.
