Virginia hits first Pack Line Pledge game of the season with win over Towson

New, comment

Plus the extra credit bonus gets triggered!

NCAA Basketball: Towson at Virginia Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 5 Virginia Cavaliers started the season off right with a strong 73-42 win over the Towson Tigers out of Maryland. A little rusty to begin, Virginia fell into their groove to pick up right where they left off from last year’s regular season, triggering the first Pack Line Pledge of the season.

Make your pledge and pay it by Thursday at 5:00 p.m. to get entered to win a pair of lower level tickets to the UVA-GW game on Sunday!

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. It’s also not too late to participate! 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.

Here’s what this season’s Pack Line Pledge count looks like so far:

WBB Bonus: Each time the women hold one of their opponents to under 55, you make your donation! Last year, nine opponents failed to reach 55. Rounding Bonus: Is holding an opponent to 55 really any less impressive than under 55? Let’s consider it a rounding error and make our donations nonetheless. Double Down Bonus: We’re talkin’ bout the postseason! If the team holds an opponent to under 55 during either the ACC Tournament or the NCAA Tournament, double your donation! Extra Credit Bonus: When the team goes above and beyond, so do you! Pay an extra buck for each point when an opponent can’t even reach 50. Held to 48 points? Add two bucks to your donation.

And thanks to all of these fine folks who have already pledged their commitment to this year’s fundraiser. Remember, sign up and fulfill your pledge by Thursday 5:00 p.m. to win a pair of lower level tickets to GW on Sunday!
