Virginia Basketball: Barnette and Jesperson jump ship

  Last week Taylor Barnette announced that he was leaving the University of Virginia Men’s basketball team.  This follows the announcement from Paul Jesperson a few months earlier that he was transferring.  What’s more surprising than having two players transfer in the same offseason is how unsurprising it is to UVa basketball.  Since Tony Bennett took the head job nine players...

Looking at Virginia recruit B.J. Stith

For those of you just getting back from your five-year tour in Antarctica, B.J.

Virginia offense working to take the next step

Who says February sucks?  Well, I do.  I hate February.  One of its few redeeming qualities is that it's the shortest month, so we get out of the misery quicker and into what is supposed to be spring.  But another redeeming quality is that it's the beginning of the spring sports season and so we get to witness a lot of wins.  Especially if the hoops team is playing well...
