Pack Line Pledge

Time: 6:00 p.m.
Date: December 30, 2014
Place: John Paul Jones Arena
TV: ESPNU
Radio: Virginia Sports Radio Network

Spread: UVA -17
Last Meeting: UVA 70, Davidson 57 (11-16-13)

Virginia's got the top defense in the country, holding opponents to just 46.2 points per game.

Davidson's got the top offense in the country, scoring 87.7 points per game.

Something's got to give.

The Hoos are coming off a nine-day holiday break, while the Wildcats have had a 10-day hiatus. The last gap Virginia had -- during exams -- resulted in a very sluggish half against Cleveland State, and with an offense as prolific as Davidson's, the Hoos won't have time to waste.

A win tonight would give the Hoos a perfect 12-0 non-conference record. A loss could result in possible confidence troubles, as the Hoos will have to travel to Miami and Notre Dame, with NC state in the middle, in its next three games.

Today's fun fact? Justin Anderson leads the ACC in three-point shooting percentage, at a career-best 60%.

But remember, if Virginia holds them 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.
