Virginia achieves 15th Pack Line Pledge game with win over Syracuse

Virginia held the Orange to a measly 44 points on Saturday

NCAA Basketball: Virginia at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

For the 15th time this season, the Virginia Cavaliers achieved a Pack Line Pledge game by holding an opponent under 55 points, two shy from last year’s Pack Line Pledge record of 17. This time, it was the Syracuse Orange who fell victim to Virginia’s stifling defense, managing to put up a mere 44 points on their own court. This is the 11th time already that a Virginia opponent couldn’t even break 50. This means it’s time pay your pledge once again.

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.
