Last Meeting: First Meeting

The Cavaliers travel to Texas as part of the Corpus Christi Challenge, where the winner of tonight's game will play the winner of MIssouri State / Texas A&M tomorrow. It's the first matchup between the two teams, which is always fun.

The Mustangs have a win over this season over TCU, who...lost to Longwood. Their sole loss comes to a respectable Arkansas (4-2). SMU holds their opponents to an average of just 35.9% shooting from the field, which may prove to be problematic for a Virginia squad that can be a little streaky at times.

SMU's probable starters:

  • JR Ryan Manuel, G, 6'4, 185
  • SR Shawn Williams, F, 6'7, 230
  • SO Nic Moore, G, 5'9, 170
  • SR Nick Russell, G, 6'4, 200
  • JR Yanick Moreira, C, 6'11, 220

Virginia's probable starters:

  • G Joe Harris, #SWOON, G, 6'6, 225
  • SO Malcolm Brogdon, G, 6'5, 217
  • FR London Perrantes, G, 6'2, 189
  • SR Akil Mitchell, F, 6'8, 235
  • SO, Mike Tobey, C, 6'11, 253

Virginia currently ranks second in the country in scoring defense, allowing just 50.4 points per game, behind San DIego St.'s 50.3.
