MaizeAndBlueWahoo's Game Recap:

Cavaliers 64 North Carolina 62

64-62.  If this game had taken place in any of the past six years, the announcers would have repeatedly stated how this pace "favors Virginia" and what a great job they were doing imposing their own tempo on the game.  As has been the case, in fact, during many a recent clash between UVA and North Carolina.

North Carolina this year, though, is not so North Carolinish.  Even if they play uptempo, and they do try, they can't overwhelm opponents with...

UNC was jobbed by the refs in their last game at the Dean Dome, as Duke escaped with a win. Still at the bottom of the ACC, would the Tar Heels be able to deny just-barely-in-the-field UVa from a much needed win?

 

Welcome to the 2020 baseball season Wahoo fans! The Hoos begin their quest for a memorable 2020 season in Pensacola, Florida against the Big 12's Oklahoma Sooners.

Posted on February 13, 2020 in The Team by Karl Hess.

For fans of college baseball, it's finally game week! And as UVA embarks on the 2020 season, there is just one goal for this season - postseason baseball. Everything is secondary to the pursuit of returning to postseason play for the first time since 2017.

So, what's it going to take to achieve that singular goal? Betting pitching and hitting, obviously. But, where exactly, must those improvements come?

Hooamp's Game Recap:

Cavaliers 50 Notre Dame 49

Jay Huff scored eight points from the 9:51 to 8:02 marks of the second half in Tuesday's game against Notre Dame at John Paul Jones Arena. They were the only points he scored all night, but they were big.

They were part of a 10-0 Virginia run that put the Cavaliers back in front of the Fighting Irish by five, and they held on from there, surviving an ugly but nail-biting overtime in which they scored three points compared to the Irish's two and didn't make a fie...

Hooamp's Game Recap:

Louisville 80 Cavaliers 73

As Tomas Woldetensae hit his seventh 3, Chris Mack picked up a technical foul, and Virginia took its first lead of the second half with 3:30 left, everyone at the KFC Yum! Center on Saturday had to be thinking the same thing: Here we go again.

Whether you were a Wahoo or a Cardinal watching the game, the proceedings were looking quite familiar. This looked like another Louisville meltdown in the making that was going to benefit UVa again, one worthy of last seas...

Louisville came in ranked #5 in the country and winners of 9 straight games. Virginia came in riding a 9-game winning streak vs the Cardinals.  Something had to give.

We're officially one week out from the 2020 season opener. With that, all preseason polls of consequence are now released. And the ACC has released its conference preseason poll as well.

We'll check out how the Hoos did in the polls as well as their ACC brethren. As usual, the league is expected to be strong. As you'll see, Louisville and Miami will be the favorites. But past those two squads, there's little consensus within the league and nationally how things ...

Late Signing Day Recap

Posted on February 6, 2020 in The Team by Karl Hess.

What was once simply National Signing Day for football programs has become the Late Signing Day. Most programs sign the majority of their recruits in the new Early Signing Day in December. UVA is no different in that regard. But there remained work to be done for the Hoos. As a result, UVA signed two new players to their 2020 class on February 5.

After the new additions, the Hoos have signed 15 new players in the recruiting class.
