Virginia marches on. For the first time in 21 years, UVa has advanced to the Elite Eight.
On March 24, 1995, Harold Deane had 22 points, and Curtis Staples and Junior Burrough had 18 each as No. 4 seed Virginia stunned Roy Williams and No. 1 Kansas in Kansas City.
Tonight, it was Anthony Gill and Mike Tobey leading the charge for the Cavaliers with 23 and 18 points, and eight and seven rebounds respectively as the Hoos beat Iowa State 84-71.
I’ve put together a chart to help detail just how long the drought was.
