There was a lot of hype over Iowa’s high-powered offense that averaged 96.3 points per game leading up to Friday night’s matchup against Virginia. Still, they were no match for the Hoos, who held the Hawkeyes to a mere 41 points in Virginia’s 74-41 drubbing of Iowa in the Emerald Coast Classic Semifinals, triggering another Pack Line Pledge game for fans everywhere.
Virginia is now five for five in Pack Line Pledge games, making this potentially the most expensive year yet, which is exactly what we’re hoping for in order to get the most dollars over to the One Love Foundation!
You can use the little CrowdRise widget to make your donation, 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 above. 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.
Big thanks to the following readers for making their pledges!
