Virginia triggers Pack Line Pledge game after holding Cal to under 55!

Despite the scare, Virginia still continues to raise money for the One Love Foundation.

Wednesday night’s late-night tipoff against Cal turned out to be a nail biter, coming down to the final seconds before Virginia was able to seal the 56-52 win over the Golden Bears. Just barely getting over 55 points themselves, the Hoos were able to hold yet another opponent to under 55, triggering the ninth (!) Pack Line Pledge game of the season. Be sure to make your donation now, before you forget!

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!
