Last Meeting: Virginia 70, Wake Forest 34 (February 25, 2015)

It's every UVa fan's favorite thing: A road basketball game! After a Jekyll-and-Hyde start to the ACC season in which the Hoos have gone 4-0 at the John Paul Jones Arena but 0-3 in all road games, the Hoos are looking to build on the momentum they built with solid home wins over Clemson and Syracuse.

The last meeting in Winston-Salem was a sight to behold for Virginia fans but a nightmare for Wake. With London Perrantes out due to a broken nose and concussion, the late February matchup saw Tony turn his young guys loose to run and gun more than usual. The result? A 36-point road win for the Hoos. Can they match that output and intensity tonight?
