Now residents say if a filmmaker ever returned, the title of their next movie should be "Ghost Town".

Virginia would answer that with a tremendous backdoor play that is capped by Willie Dersch's slam dunk.
But McIntyre would find Harold Jamison on the baseline for the slam and Clemson hit the half on top 36-to-22.
The lead would expand to 18, before UVa came roaring back behind Colin Ducharme - who chops the lead to 9.
But Jamison ended any thoughts of an upsetting comeback as he throws down the dunk. UVa loses it 69 to 52 to fall to 10-and-9.
