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...

Virginia's defense in for a test vs. tempo-pushing Memphis

RALEIGH, N.C. -- For the first few years of Virginia head coach Tony Bennett's tenure in Charlottesville, his style of play was constantly under siege because of its relative lack of aesthetic value, particularly on the offensive end. Until this year. The No. 1 seed Cavaliers are an offensive machine in ways that the critics of their slow play couldn't begin to understand...

Three Hits: Virginia survives scare from Coastal Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Every year, at least one  top seed has that moment where it seems like they will be the first to fall to a 16-seed. They make a run, get the crowd or viewers excited, and it's not quite enough. Virginia had watched higher seeds get upset for nearly two full days before the Cavaliers got their chance to play, and then they were nearly a victim themselves.  But...

ESPN’s Pablo Torre Picks 16-Seed Coastal Carolina To Upset 1-Seed Virginia

ESPN columnist and television personality Pablo Torre isn’t going to be making any friends in Charlottesville, Virginia any time soon. Today, on Around The Horn, Torre predicted that 16-seed Coastal Carolina will be the first team to ever knock off a 1-seed in its first game in the NCAA Tournament.

Here’s Dick Vitale With Some Analysis About Virginia Coach Tony Bennett And A Stripper

Virginia frustrates Duke to win first ACC tourney title since 1976

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- As confetti rained down on victorious Virginia, the Charlottesville contingent in attendance -- which was surprisingly sizable -- didn't seem to want to leave. They swayed back and forth with the music, waved their signs and pompoms and generally had a look of dazed happiness on their faces as they just soaked in the moment. The crowd had done its job, by...

Up three with four seconds separating his squad from a berth in the ACC tournament championship game, do you foul or trust your defense to get the win?
