The AFP on WREL: Busy holiday sports season

Editor Chris Graham joins WREL’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan” to talk Virginia sports.

The segment begins with the up-and-down Virginia men’s basketball team, which won in spite of itself Monday night over a one-win Norfolk State team. Which Cavs are the ones that are for real? The ones with wins on the road over Minnesota and Virginia Tech, or the ones with tougher-than-expected home wins over Radford and NSU?

Next up is a review of the classic 82-80 upset by the JMU women over UVa. Monday night at the Convo, and we wrap with an early preview of the Orange Bowl matchup pitting Virginia Tech and #4 Stanford.
