Anthony Gill led the way with 19 points and seven boards as No. 1 Virginia cruised past No. 19 Hampton, 81-45.

The Cavaliers will advance to face No. 9 seed Butler in the second round.

There was a scary moment near the end of the first half, as UVA head coach Tony Bennett collapsed on the sidelines:

“I jsut was crouched down and was a little dehydrated, got up and blacked out a little bit. But I’m OK,” Bennett told truTV after the break. “I just think I was crouched down in that spot, got up quick and got a head rush.”
