Game Preview

UVA played Syracuse more than two months ago. The world was a different place then. For starters, the starters: Jack Salt. Remember when Jack Salt was getting the start and playing four minutes a game for the Cavs?

Isaiah Wilkins got 19 minutes off the bench. Mike Tobey got 14. Marial Shayok put in five, and did nothing: a row of zeroes in the box score, an incredibly rare 5 quadrillion for his night’s work.

The Cavs got the win, 73-65, to improve to, gulp, 4-3 in the ACC. Remember those days, when UVA needed a win at home to get back over .500 in conference play?

Some takeaways from the Jan. 24 win:
