GameDay Blog: UVA, Virginia Tech football, plus UVA basketball in NYC


uva-logo-new2It’s a busy day in UVA sports, and Augusta Free Press has you covered. The football team is in Blacksburg to take on Virginia Tech at Lane Stadium at 8 p.m., and the basketball team is in New York City for the Barclays Center Classic with a 9:30 p.m. tipoff with LaSalle.

Augusta Free Press editor Chris Graham will be courtside at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the basketball game, and staff writer Scott German is in the press box in Lane Stadium for the UVA-Virginia Tech football game.

Both will be live-blogging their respective games, and we’re expecting Chris, along with AFP’s Crystal Graham, to weigh in during the first half of the football game.

Score updates, game commentary, analysis and more from both venues.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
