The No. 21 Virginia Cavaliers must have had redemption on their minds last Saturday as they hosted the Pittsburgh Panthers in the regular season finale at John Paul Jones Arena. On senior day, the Hoos sent London Perrantes off in style, as they held Pitt to a mere 42 points in their 67-42 victory. This is the 17th (!) time an opponent has failed to reach 55 points against the Hoos.

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.
