Virginia’s offense fades late against Ohio in NCAA tournament upset

Photo by Stacy Revere/ A disappointing end to a difficult season. For awhile, it didn’t seem like Virginia would have a chance to compete in the 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. A positive coronavirus test within the program force the Cavaliers to withdraw from the ACC tournament, and Virginia didn’t arrive in Indianapolis until Friday afternoon. On Saturday night, Virginia showed that rust from the lay-off as they shot just 35% from the field and 26% from three in a 62-58 loss to 13-seed Ohio.

The Pack Line is designed to keep the ball out of the paint and force tough outside shots, but if a team is content to shoot from outside and...
