After a 2-0 week on the road, the Cavaliers are looking even better than last week

We said last week that the Cavaliers were already sitting pretty based off the metrics the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee would use.

After going 2-0 in road games against Syracuse and Florida State, UVa is looking even better this week.

Thanks to home losses by Villanova and Purdue, the Hoos were able to open up a lead on the competition in the RPI and leave no doubt in anyone’s mind that if the Tournament started today, they would be the #1 overall seed.

Here is how Virginia’s team sheet looks this week.

The wins on the road against FSU and Syracuse gave UVa two more Quad 1 victories. As it stands now, Virginia has the third most Quad 1 victories, behind Villanova, with nine, and Kansas, with eight. However, Villanova has a Quad 2 loss, and Kansas has two Quad 2 losses and a Quad 3 loss.

This upcoming week, Virginia takes on Virginia Tech at home, which will likely be a Quad 2 game, and another road game at Miami. Miami currently sits at No. 19 in the RPI, so that will give UVa another Quad 1 game.
