Department: The Team

The game that pissed me off the most last year was our trip to Raleigh to face the NC State Wolfpack. They took us to overtime in what I thought was our worst performance of the season; nevertheless, we escaped with the win. Today, on a short turnaround for both teams, would the Wolfpack be able to return the favor this year?

 

In each of all three of Virginia’s consecutive losses, the Cavaliers held a lead late in the second half. That was true again at McCamish Pavilion as the Cavs held a 43 – 29 lead at the 14:47 mark.  Six minutes later the advantage had dwindled to 48 – 46 and it was game on.  Would the Cavaliers be able to settle down and finally take care of business?

 

Virginia traveled to Tallahassee to take on the kind of Florida State that always gives us fits: fast, deep, and long and rangy on the wings. We’re starting to hear about NCAA seedings and the need for “quality” wins, which a victory over the #10 Seminoles would be. Alas, the standard woes that have plagued this team were on full display on Wednesday.
