CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Armaan Franklin scored 20 points, Jayden Gardner had 16 and No. 13 Virginia ended a two-game skid, breezing past Albany 66-46. Coming off losses at home to Houston and on the road to Miami that sent it tumbling from the No. 2 spot in the AP Top 25, Virginia went on a 30-4 run spanning the halves to pull away in its final nonconference game. The Cavaliers played without starting guard Reece Beekman, who is battling a right hamstring injury. Da’Kquan Davis led the Great Danes with 11 points. They shot 31% overall.
