How concerned are you with the recent shooting slumps? It’s hard to say for sure. After starting the...

The Big Preview: Virginia Basketball looks for payback against JMU

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports UVA hosts James Madison looking for a win to avenge last year’s road upset. Last year’s Virginia Cavaliers men’s basketball team had some tough losses, but perhaps none worse than the loss to JMU on the road. That was the first time JMU had ever beaten Virginia in basketball. That JMU team wasn’t actually good, finishing 15-14 (6-12 in the CAA). This year, they may actually be good. They are 7-2, with losses at UNC (understandable) and to Valparaiso (not so understandable). They are one of the fastest teams in the nation,...

What problems did Florida State expose for UVA basketball?

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Addressing what went wrong versus the ‘Noles and what it means going forward. This past Saturday, the Virginia Cavaliers men’s basketball team improved to 7-0 by taking down the Florida State Seminoles, 62-57. Despite the fact that the ‘Hoos won the game, most of us were left underwhelmed given their roaring start to the season, the Seminoles’ exact opposite trend, and the fact that UVA never truly pulled away from an inferior opponent. Shot Quality quantifies the expected value of each shot taken throughout a game based on a number...

From the team’s overall encouraging play, a few particular observations have stood out as especially key improvements or leaps. These three surprises have each been major...

The Big Preview: UVA basketball opens ACC play at home against FSU

Photo by Ryan M. Kelly/ The Virginia Cavaliers open ACC play after a 6-0 start in out-of-conference play. They have three more OOC games before ACC play begins in earnest, but play the first game of their ACC schedule against the Florida State Seminoles Saturday at 2:00 PM.
