Can UVA basketball get any respect on the national stage?

cavalanche1Host Jeff Fife and Augusta Free Press editor Chris Graham talk a lot of ‘Hoos on UVA Sports Today.

UVA basketball picked up a pair of key road wins last week, but the Cavs still aren’t getting any buzz on the national stage. What does Tony Bennett’s group need to do to get folks to stand up and take notice?

Chris and Jeff break down the wins at Maryland and VCU, analyze the impact that the 12-day exam break will have on the Cavalanche and look ahead to the ACC.

Then the gears shift to talk football. UVA is one of three ACC teams not playing in the bowl postseason, but Florida State is in the first-ever national playoff, and we look at how the Seminoles will fare as they look to defend their national title.

That and an early look at the 2015 ACC football season wrap us up.
