Transfers lead No. 4 UVa to rout of Towson in Bubbleville

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Virginia coach Tony Bennett already had a roster that was expected to compete for a national title this season, even without sharpshooter Trey Murphy III, who was expected to sit out a year after transferring from Rice.

But Murphy persuaded his coach to apply for a waiver from the NCAA and on Tuesday, the team learned it had been granted.

The fourth-ranked Cavaliers' newest weapon scored 21 points in his debut Wednesday, a season-opening 89-54 rout of Towson.
