UVA basketball began the 2014-2015 season ranked in the Top 10. So you probably expected the ‘Hoos to be 9-0 and ranked fifth. It wasn’t a hard road there, but neither was it a given.
The big question for UVA basketball coming into the 2014-2015 season had to do with who would step up to fill the voids left by the graduations of Joe Harris and Akil Mitchell.
Having observed the three-month long train wreck that has been Virginia football this season, the business-like 79-51 win by the UVA men’s basketball team over JMU was just fine.
The JMU Convocation Center was as hyped as it will ever be for the visit by eighth-ranked UVA Friday night. And then, in a flash, it was a lot of people who wanted to be amped otherwise sitting on their hands.
On paper, the season opener for eighth-ranked UVA basketball at in-state rival JMU on Friday isn’t much of a game.

Rising junior point guard Teven Jones seemed very much noncommittal about his future at UVa. following the Cavs’ 61-59 loss to Michigan State in the Sweet 16 Friday night in Madison Square Garden.
Everybody and their president had Michigan State as national champs when the brackets were announced two weeks ago. The fourth-seeded Spartans wouldn’t even consider the top-seed UVa. a road bump along the way. The entirety of the NCAA Tournament was a coronation of the preseason favorite who spent three weeks at the top of the national polls before a slew of injuries knocked Sparty down a few pegs.
