Well, Virginia is taking on a 5-5 MVC team, which should give fans a little bit of comfort. That's probably what VCU thought last week when they visited the 4-5 Panthers, up until Northern Iowa walked away with a 77-68 victory.

Virginia fans are ready to hit the panic button already. After a terrifyingly disappointing football season, the fan base has a "Here we go again" mentality regardless of the sport. But Virginia is a deep squad with lots of talent. And once we find a leader on the team, whether it's Joe, Justin, Akil, or really anyone else, the squad will be ready to do some damage in the ACC.

Last week, the STL crew discussed what Coach Bennett and the boys needed to focus on during the exam week break. And yesterday, we broke down what you need to know about UNI. Hopefully our boys read our game plan, and we can start adding some Ws to the record.

Leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts here and as always, Go HOOS!
