The Virginia Cavaliers’ 75-58 win over the Louisville Cardinals in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament was a display of offensive efficiency by the Hoos—one of their best all season. It was Louisville’s third loss this season at the hands of Virginia, leaving the Cardinals’ NCAA Tournament fate still in the air. Meanwhile, the Hoos are headed to their fourth ACC semifinal matchup in five years as they’ll take on the Clemson Tigers Friday night at 7:00 p.m.
In the meantime, we thought you might want to pass some time by watching these four fantastic highlights and sizzle reels from Virginia’s performance on Thursday afternoon.
“Kyle Guy has the stones to knock it down!”
Looks like Guy took a page out of Ty Jerome’s playbook when he decided to bury this three with the shot clock winding down to three at the release. “Those are the types of possessions that Virginia has that just breaks your heart.”
“Four-minute segments. Time out to time out.”
In his postgame court side interview, Guy speaks highly of how unselfish the Hoos are. “Devon might say otherwise, because I dunked it at the end, but he’s behind me,” so it doesn’t even matter.
“They really challenged us. They’re probably our toughest challenge.”
After the game, a gassed Ty Jerome called Louisville their “toughest challenge” during the regular season, having stretched Virginia to its upper limits. But, great teams find a way to win, and turns out, a lot can happen in 0.9 seconds. (Come on, you knew that was coming.)
VirginiaSportsTV always knows how to do it.
And finally, the folks over at VirginiaSportsTV always put together a red hot sizzle reel and today’s was no different. Despite Louisville cutting a big Virginia lead down to just four, the Hoos still took care of business to come away with the 17-point win in Brooklyn.
