Against tough competition, the Virginia Cavaliers lost their first game in Italy to KK Mega Basket today, 92-73. After blowing out the competition in the first two contests, the ‘Hoos struggled against the Serbian outfit who rained threes down on Tony Bennett’s squad. While the UVA offense kept the team in the game for a while, eventually, the elastic broke and KK Mega pulled away.

Of course, UVA has released a roughly two-minute highlight video from the game. Notable moments include threes from Reece Beekman and Kadin Shedrick as the two juniors flashed their potential. Shedrick in particular was all over the floor finishing, blocking shots, and hitting that triple.
Taine Murray, Kihei Clark, and Isaac McKneely were also in on the action hitting deep balls and making plays. McKneely had a few sweet passes while Murray had a nice finish through contact for an and-one.
