Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia needs to have a short memory and forget about its offensive woes from Wednesday. This contest against Green Bay could be a quality much-needed win down the road.

Odds: KenPom: UVA 65-62 (64%)

Earlier this week, as part of the Wisconsin game thread, I wrote that three keys to Virginia's game was to reduce turnovers, make free throws, and defend the three ball. Though Virginia's turnover game was still a bit higher, at 10, it accounted for just 17.5% of UVA's possessions, which, while not great, is certainly respectable. The Hoos shot 78.9% from the line and held Wisconsin to 21.7% three-point shooting (5-23).

I apparently forgot to remind the team that scoring points would also be important.

So today, against Green Bay, I give you new keys to the game

  1. Make layups
  2. Score buckets
  3. Hit threes
  4. Have a short memory

With that kind of recipe, I'm feeling much better about today's contest. Green Bay ranks fifth in the country in blocked shot percentage, at 20.5% (Alec Brown is really good at that), and steal the ball 10.9% of the time.

Also of note, Green Bay lost to Wisconsin earlier this year, but just by three -- 69-66 -- at Green Bay.

Virginia is looking to close out its out-of-conference schedule with four straight wins, and it starts tonight at Green Bay. Go HOOS!
