Spread: Vegas: UVA -23; KenPom: UVA 71, BC 50 (98%)
Last Meeting: Virginia 66, BC 51 (January 17, 2015)
Virginia returns home after 10 days away from John Paul Jones to face a Boston College squad that has settled into its place at the bottom of the ACC barrel. Still, Virginia fans have noted that the team has a tendency to play to the level of its opponents, and after the Hoos' big win at Louisville over the weekend, they don't want to be caught sleeping in what should be a cakewalk for the team.
Football is -- somehow -- on everyone's minds today as Coach Bronco Mendenhall and company have done a great job on social media and beyond to rally the fan base behind the team with excitement. We, too, are excited what the staff has to offer, but for the next few hours, we're focused solely on the Virginia Basketball #hoosrising to the top.
That was a terrible line. Whelp, here we go!
