Pack Line Pledge #1: Virginia stifles Syracuse

New, 1 comment

The defending national champions open on the road with a Pack Line Pledge game!

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

The Virginia Cavaliers opened up the 2019-2020 campaign with a 48-34 “defensive battle” win over the Syracuse Orange. It wasn’t as pretty as anyone hoped—one might even say it was a downright ugly game. But for the defending national champions to open on the road against an ACC foe, coming home with a win is the only thing that matters. Holding the Orange to just 34 measly points, including just two (2!!) in the first 10 minutes, triggers the first Pack Line Pledge payment and and extra $16 donation to those who pledged the extra credit bonus.

Don’t forget, you have until Sunday to register for the pledge to be entered to win one of our two prize packages!

Forgot how much you pledged? Scroll to the bottom of this post. Unfortunately Crowdrise no longer supports the useful widget we used to include here, but you can now donate directly through One Love’s website. Just use the link above or right here.

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. Click here to learn all about the bonus opportunities.

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.
