Virginia Cavaliers

It has been tough lately for the Virginia Cavaliers as they are trying to find the magic that made them undefeated for eight games to start the season. In their last game, it was a difficult overtime loss for them against Syracuse Orange, 55-63. Jay Huff was the best player on the team with 16 points, ten rebounds and two blocks while Kihei Clark and Mamadi Diakite each had 13 points.

Clark’s complete stat line is 13 points, nine assists, six rebounds and three triples while Diakite had 13 points, eight rebounds and a block. Braxton Key had a tough night shooting 3-of-11 but he managed to finish with 7 points, 11 rebounds and four steals. In order to beat the Seminoles and end their streak, they need to channel what works for them in their past games and find ways to get the chemistry kicking again.
