It was a quiet week, but there's always wins.

It's a little later than usual, but it's still Monday. So, let's do this.

-In a pretty quiet week, Men's Basketball picked up another win, this time an 80-54 final over Lehigh. Malcolm Brogdon dropped 23 points on the Mountain Hawks as Virginia used a 24-8 Cavalanche in the second half to secure the victory. Brogdon went 10-15 from the field (3-5 from three point land) with four rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Darius Thompson (12 points), Marial Shayok (11 points), and Anthony Gill (10 points) all recorded double digits, and Devon Hall, Mike Tobey, and Isaiah Wilkins all grabbed five rebounds to lead the team.

The scoring was balanced, and for the fifth time in their six games, Virginia put at least 80 points on the board (OMG SO BORING, AMIRITE?).

Darius Thompson had a SportsCenter Top Ten finish on an alley-oop and Caid Kirven notched his first basket of the season.

Check out the highlights:

Up next, the No.10 Hoos face Ohio State in Columbus for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The game starts at 7:30pm and will be on ESPN.

-Women's Basketball picked up a win over Green Bay, 68-59, in the opening round of the Paradise Jam. The Hoos were down as much as 14 points in the game, but second year Mikayla Venson scored 25 points to help the Cavaliers pick up the win.

The Hoos are now 5-2 and host Iowa on Wednesday at 7pm.

-Former Virginia Tennis star Dom Inglot was part of the Davis Cup winning team this week. Congrats, Dom!

-Several Virginia Football players made the All-ACC team, led by Micah Kiser and Quin Blanding on the first team. The first-team honor is the second in Blanding's short career, and the duo are the first 'sophomores' to be first team All-ACC since Heath Miller (HEEEEEATH!!) and the first 'sophomore' defensive players since Anthony Poindexter.

Fourth year Canaan Severin was named to the second team, finishing his season with an impressive 759 receiving yards. He finished his UVA career with 102 catches and 1,383 yards (nos. 19 and 15, respectively, in the UVA record book).

Taquan "Smoke" Mizzell earned third team honors for his ridiculous 1,448 all-purpose yards, which was good for second place in the ACC.

Three players, Ross Burbank, David Dean, and Nick Conte, were honorable mentions. Shout out to Conte, who punted his heart out all season, leading the ACC with 44.7 yards per punt (MVP! MVP!).
