Tag: Duke (Basketball(M), February 29, 2020)

Seattle Hoo and Val return after a real-life-dictated hiatus to finally review the 2019-20 season and discuss some team awards. They also ponder the imponderable: What's your favorite season of the Bennett Era? But first, they welcome the newest hoops Hoo, Trey Murphy, with some analysis of his game and a review of his history with UVA. We would have had StLouHoo to run down the football recruiting, but Seattle experienced brain dysfunction and told him the wrong time. Hopefully we can coax StLou on next episode.

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.
