Virginia Commonwealth guard Treveon Graham (21) launches a winning three-point shot over Virginia guard …

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Treveon Graham scored 22 points, including a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds to play, and No. 14 VCU beat No. 25 Virginia 59-56 on Tuesday night in front a sellout crowd at John Paul Jones Arena.

The Rams (2-0) trailed for almost all of the final 10 minutes until Graham's steal and baseline jumper gave them a 56-55 lead with 1:18 left.

Malcolm Brogdon then hit just the second of two free throws with 9.7 seconds left for the Cavaliers (1-1), tying the game before the Rams called time out and set up the final play.

Rob Brandenburg brought the ball up, went around a screen and fired a pass back to Graham, who shot from the left side of the arc and swished it through for just the sixth 3-pointer of the game.

Joe Harris led Virginia with 18 points.
