Virginia’s Lock Down Defense is Best in the Country

Virginia has already held four opponents to under 40 this season!

Virginia’s defense is the best in the country. You read this site, so you already know this. In addition to already having held four opponents to under 40 points this season, the Hoos have the tightest scoring defense in the nation, allowing only an average of 53.4 points per game, and if this holds all season, it’ll be the third time in four years that Virginia has allowed the fewest points per game in the country.

The ACC Digital Network put together this fun little sizzler showing off Virginia’s defensive prowess. There are plenty of dunking and high-octane offense sizzle reels out there, so it’s nice to see one that focuses on the D. The defense, I mean.
