Last Meeting: I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT LALALALALALALA (Va. Tech 70, UVa 68, 1/4/16)
Revenge of the nerds. The empire strikes back. However you want to call it, no doubt Tuesday night presents the Virginia Cavaliers with an opportunity for payback.
Although the Virginia team of the last two weeks could hardly be seen as the same team that lost in Blacksburg back in January. Over the last three games, the Hoos have held their opponents—including noted offensive juggernaut Boston College—to only 0.81 points per trip. Senior Malcolm Brogdon has stepped up too, scoring 21.6 points per game over the last six while shooting 55 percent from three and 96 percent from the charity stripe.
It's game night in Charlottesville, so dig in, slap the floor, and LET'S GO HOOS!
