Last Meeting: December 23, 2013: Virginia 66, Norfolk State 56

After an easy rout of JMU to open the season on Friday night, the Hoos play their season home opener against a Norfolk State team against whom Virginia is 3-0 all time. That's not to say Virginia hasn't struggled against this squad in the past -- last year's matchup against Norfolk State was an ugly one plagued with sloppy play by the Cavaliers. In 2010, Virginia escaped with just a one point, 50-49.

The Hoos should be back at full strength tonight with the return of Evan Nolte and London Perrantes, each of whom were suspended for violating team rules over the summer.

And remember, if Virginia holds Norfolk State to under 50 tonight, those of us who made the pledge will be donating to the One Love Foundation! Read more about the Pack Line Pledge here.
