Like I said earlier today, tonight's matchup is huge for Virginia, as the Hoos travel for their first "should-win" ACC contest against a struggling GT squad.
No doubt about it, Virginia's defense should be able to hold up tonight without much struggle. The question is whether the offense will be able to score, an issue that's been somewhat recurring over the past few games. Georgia Tech is one of the best shot-blocking teams in the country, and if they add on top of that their tendency to apply some full court pressure, our offense might look a little sloppy at times tonight. We're outsized both at center and at the point, so the Hoos will have to figure something out to get enough quality shots off tonight.
Leave your pre-, in- and post-game thoughts here, and Go HOOS!
