We just put up our preview earlier today on this afternoon's match up against the Terrapins on their senior night, so we'll keep this short and sweet. The short of it is, it's not going to be pretty, and has the potential to hugely deflate our boys' confidence heading into the ACC Tournament next week. It will be up to head coach Tony Bennett to keep their heads on straight and to get them to play 40 minutes of solid basketball.

Speaking of Bennett, the sweet of it is, he has a career record of 99-63 heading into today's game and will be looking for his 100th win. At Virginia, he's an even 30-30, after going 69-33 while at Washington State.

What do you think? Can Virginia pull off the upset (yes, sadly, this is considered an upset)? Will there be a repeat embarrassing performance of the first meeting between the two teams? Leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts below.
