Virginia is coming off a high, after upsetting No. 13 Minnesota on the road and opening conference play with a win at Virginia Tech. Tonight's game is the first home game the Cavaliers have played since November 15 -- seven games ago. Tonight also marks the first of an eight game home stand that ends in an ACC battle with North Carolina. The game isn't televised, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't care.

(10.1).That said, the Cavaliers are returning from a 6-game road trip that took over 11,500 miles, with the last one just two days ago. The team must be fatigued, particularly Scott, who played 38 minutes on Sunday night (Harris played 36 and Farrakhan was in for 35).

Virginia will need to be equally alert on the court tonight and not let the prospect of 10 days off get in the way of a solid effort tonight.
