Virginia came back from a 15-deficit in the first half to overcome a tough game from UNC-Wilmington to open the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Hoos had gutty performances from London Perrantes (24 points), Marial Shayok (23 points) and Darius Thompson (10 points, four blocks) as Virginia eked out a 76-71 victory.
After the game, members of the media spoke with the players in the locker room.

Virginia will play the winner of ETSU and Florida on Saturday, at a time still to be determined.
