Yes, the Virginia Cavaliers football team fell to Virginia Tech yet again on Friday, 34-31 in overtime, but men’s basketball did win the Battle 4 Atlantis title, besting Wisconsin in the final, 53-46. And hey, if that doesn’t help you get over your sorrows, try and remember 1998’s win over the Hokies.
Malcolm Brogdon hit another key shot for the Milwaukee Bucks (14-5) on Saturday, nailing a three with just 8.4 seconds left to help clinch the game for his team. Brogdon finished with 23 points on the night.
The Virginia Men’s soccer team saw their season come to a close last night, as they fell in the NCAA Tournament to 6th-seeded Notre Dame, 1-0 in OT. A header from the Fighting Irish’s Jack Lynn at the end of the first overtime sealed the Cavaliers’ fate. With the loss, the Hoos wrap up 2018 with a mark of 10-4-3.
Despite Friday’s disappointment against Virginia Tech, junior wideout Joe Reed continued his recent surge, recording four catches for 119 yards and two important touchdowns. On Reed, UVA Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall said that he’s “helped our play production offensively significantly.”
Trophies are cool.
