For better or worse: Virginia Cavaliers

Last season the Virginia Cavaliers finished the season with a 2-10 record and went winless in the ACC. Their best win was the season opener against BYU and their worst loss came in week five when they got routed by Ball State. Will the Cavs be better or worse than they were last season?

No. 58 Virginia Cavaliers season preview

It has been a rough couple years for coach Mike London and the Virginia Cavaliers.

ACC Countdown: No. 14 Virginia

Does Virginia have the worst talent level in the ACC? Not at all. But the reason the Cavaliers are here is because they've had talent above their on-field results before under head coach Mike London, who came in with a bang in 2011 with a stellar recruiting class. He's continued that trend, including signing a very good class this year. But in the last two seasons, with said...

More on Virginia's transfer pickup, Darius Thompson

I would say at this point it's a good idea to dispense with the notion that Tony Bennett cares very much about roster management, in the sense of trying to even out the classes.  Tony will just plug every spot he can and worry about stuff later.  It makes sense; there are so many variables for the future that, why worry about them now when instead you can act on what you...

Virginia basketball season in review, 2

Continuing the series begun last week. #12 - Joe Harris - Sr. SF This season: As predicted, Harris's raw numbers went down this year.  He scored less and rebounded less, and played fewer minutes too.  And as predicted, this was a good sign; it meant more reliance on a larger number of teammates.  Spread things out and it can only be a good thing. Harris's shooting percentages...
