Charlottesville, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Treveon Graham had 22 points, including a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining to lift No. 14 VCU past No. 25 Virginia, 59-56, on Tuesday night.

The Rams (2-0) ended the game on a 10-1 run.

After Darion Atkins' right baseline jumper staked the Cavaliers (1-1) a 55-49 cushion with 2:55 left, Juvonte Reddic's putback dunk and Jordan Burgess' right corner triple on back-to-back touches whittled the deficit to 55-54 with 2:21 to play.

A little more than a minute later, Graham forced a steal and got his right baseline floater to fall for a 56-55 VCU lead with 1:18 on the clock. Joe Harris missed a 3 at the other end, but the Rams' Briante Weber clanked the front end of a one-and-one with 27 ticks remaining.

The Cavs' Malcolm Brogdon drew a foul with 9.7 seconds left and split the pair to knot the tilt at 56-56.

Rob Brandenberg was unable to find a driving lane following a VCU timeout and dished to Graham, who drained his deep jumper from several feet beyond the top of arc.

Justin Anderson's desperation triple at the horn ricocheted sharply off the glass.
