Make your Pack Line Pledge donation here.

For the 16th time this season, the No. 23 Virginia Cavaliers held their opponent to under 55 points, triggering yet another Pack Line Pledge donation! The Hoos held No. 5 North Carolina to a mere 43 points for another upset of a top-5 opponent, for a final score of 53-43. And don’t forget, despite the loss, the Hoos held Miami to under-55 again, so don’t forget that donation.

You can make your donation on the Crowdrise website here, 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 here. 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.
