Seattle and Val celebrate the wins over Virginia Tech and Duke and how they bring the Hoos to within striking distance of another ACC Regular Season Championship. Then with Senior Day coming up, we honor a couple of Champions: our Seniors Mamadi Diakite and Braxton Key, without whom UVA would not have an NCAA Men's Basketball Championship!




Virginia + / - Duke

Virginia vs Duke had all the hallmarks of the classic physics conundrum:  what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immoveable object?  In this case it was Duke’s offense (#2 in the country at 83.3 points per game) vs Virginia’s #1 defense at 52.7 points allowed.  As it is always, something had to give.


Seattle and Val try to process those last three minutes against Pitt so we can enjoy the fact of a road win against a talented team that plays well at home. Then we look at how the Hoos beat up on Boston College, addition by subtraction, and that opportunity awaits. How high can the Hoos go and what do they have to do to get there? Beating Tech is first and we tell you how!
