The situation is not as dire this week for Virginia as it seemed last week against Florida State, but the Hoos will need to start pulling in some road wins if they want to keep any NCAA hopes alive. After skidding down a 0-4 stretch, the Hokies have won their last two -- against Georgia Tech and against Wake Forest -- and are now hoping to continue their trend.

As we all know, Virginia has been up and down this season and are having a tough time finding offensive production on the road. The Hoos will look to shut down Erick Green, the Hokies' leading scorer by far (averaging 24.6 points per game) (sorry I just used a tempo stat) (he's actually the nation's leading scorer) (abuse of parentheses).

Leave your game thoughts here and GO HOOS!
