Virginia holds Robert Morris to under-55 to trigger Pack Line Pledge!

The Hoos have held 80% of opponents to under 55.

The Virginia Cavaliers lead the country in scoring defense as the only team holding opponents to under 50 points per game on average. On Saturday afternoon, the Hoos’ stifling pack line defense did it again, defeating Robert Morris 79-39 to trigger the eighth Pack Line Pledge game on the season.

You can use the little CrowdRise widget to make your donation, which is tax deductible as the money goes straight to the One Love Foundation.

For those of you who don’t remember, for ever Pack Line Pledge game -- that is, for every game that the Cavaliers hold their opponents to under 55 — Pack Line Pledge participants will donate a set amount to the One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love. The better the Hoos’ defense over the course of the year, the more money gets donated towards raising awareness of relationship violence.

Make your donation above. But to join the list below and to receive email reminders when Virginia holds an opponent to under-55, be sure to register on the initial announcement page. Remember that no amount is too small — even pledging just $2 or $5 per game will make a difference. If CrowdRise has a minimum donation amount, just hold on to your gifts until you reach the minimum, or until the end of the season.

Big thanks to the following readers for making their pledges!
