NC State has never won a game at JPJA.

...Did that make anyone feel better? Didn't think so. Despite the Wolfpack's No. 19 ranking, the Cavaliers are favored to win tonight by Vegas, Pomeroy, and my heart. I, for one, am still terrified of this game and recognize the importance of a win tonight in improving Virginia's chances of making the big dance (the NCAA tournament, not the ACC tournament - I feel good about their chances for the latter).

The original word on the street was that leading scorer C.J. Leslie may be out tonight, but according to reports coming from JPJA, it looks like no such luck for the Hoos.

Additional word on the street (read: Whitey Reid) is that Darion Atkins is testing out his shin at the time of this writing and is being evaluated by the coaches.

Leave your game thoughts here and GO HOOS!
