Chris Graham: Quick hits from the UVa.-Northern Iowa game

Some observations from UVa.’s 57-43 win over Northern Iowa on Saturday.

uva-logo-new2Nice win over a tough opponent: Northern Iowa beat VCU last week 77-68, and earlier this month lost in overtime to #17 Iowa State. This wasn’t your average 5-5 team coming in here today, and considering that UVa. last played two weeks ago, losing 75-72 at Green Bay, today was no easy task for the ‘Hoos. Nice effort after the sluggish start to take control in the second half.

Justin Anderson: The Man Child took over at times, leading the team in scoring with 16, but it wasn’t just his points. He hit three three-pointers, scored in the lane on a runner, had a highlight-reel assist on a layup by Akil Mitchell, and two cringe-inducing blocked shots on layup attempts by UNI players on fast breaks. This is what Anderson does for UVa.: a little bit of everything.

Whither Joe Harris: It was another ho-hum night for the 2012-2013 first-team All-ACC guard. Twelve points on 4-of-11 shooting, just 1-of-7 from three-point range, just 3-of-5 from the foul line. Harris hasn’t been the same in terms of productivity since his 36-point effort in the upset win over Duke in February.

Telling stat: UNI had just three assists on 19 made baskets. Three. The magic number. You’re not going to win a lot of games getting three assists as a team in 40 minutes.

    Telling stat #2: Average attendance at JPJ this year, through seven home games, is 10907, a little less than 5,000 per game below capacity. For an athletics program that just ended a football season averaging 46,279 fans per game, or more than 15,000 below capacity, this is not a good number. Somebody (ahem, CL) needs to put somebody in charge of the marketing department who has a clue, stat.
