Virginia came away with a big win Saturday night on the road and are looking to do it again, this time in Durham, where the Cavaliers haven't sniffed victory since January 14, 1995.

The Hoos are red hot right now, beating ACC opponents by an average of 22 points per game, while Duke is coming off a head scratcher loss to Clemson, 72-59. Duke has lost two of its last three, but its other loss came at the hands of Notre Dame.

With Mike Tobey showing some newfound aggressiveness, and Akil Mitchell returning true to the form fans saw and loved last year, Virginia looks like they're finally coming together. Joe Harris has hit several threes from way downtown over the past couple games, while Justin Anderson's energy remains unmatched.

Duke's offense is coming from their youth this year, behind freshman Jabari Parker (19.5 PPG) and redshirt sophomore Rodney Hood (18.6 PPG). Hood logged his third straight 20-point game against Clemson their last time out.

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