Game Recap: Virginia

X used a dominating run early to put this game out of reach. Inconsistent free throw shooting helped UVA trim it to fourteen for the final of 84-70. Sylven Landesberg was as good as advertised with 25 points for the Cavs. X did not turn it over as much as they have previously which is an encouraging sign heading into conference play but the free throw shooting as mentioned above could be better.

It was nice to see BJ Raymond pour in 24. When he is good the team is good. Kenny Frease posted career highs of 13 and 8 and used foul trouble on behalf of Jason Love to get more minutes in this game. He scored 11 in the first half off of 5 buckets. Redford had some early offense for us when we were struggling the first four minutes of game time. Anderson's box score won't look that sexy but he certainly shared the ball much more this game and was solid overall. Dante' came off the bench again and contributed 13 points as well. This game featured the best ball movement on offense in my opinion that we have had all season, hope that continues as we move forward. Nice to earn a road win over an ACC team. Thursday night we tip conference play off against St. Louis at 8 PM.
