Virginia will return to road warrior status this evening as they head up to Pittsburgh to take on Pitt.

Here are four bullet points taken straight from the UVA Game Notes:

  • Virginia meets Pitt in the first of two meetings in 2016-17.
  • The Cavaliers have a seven-game winning streak vs. Pitt.
  • UVA ranks first in the nation in scoring defense at 48.6 points per game and has held 10 of its 13 opponents to 53 or fewer points.
  • London Perrantes leads UVA in scoring at 9.9 points per game, marking the lowest scoring average to lead any UVA team in a single season (Malcolm Brogdon 12.7 ppg in 2013-14).
