Virginia and Johns Hopkins seemed tied together all afternoon Saturday, neither team building more than a two-goal advantage. But in a frenetic battle at Klöckner Stadium, the No. 7 Blue Jays (5-1, 0-0 Big Ten) eventually embarked on a four-goal second-half run against the No. 2 Cavaliers (3-1, 0-0 ACC), grabbing a fragile lead and holding on to capture a 16-14 win.
Barring injury or catastrophe, junior goalie Matt Nunes will eventually climb to the top of the Virginia men’s lacrosse standings for career goalie wins. After Sunday’s 14-8 defeat of No. 20 Ohio State, Nunes is tied for seventh on the list, and with the better part of two seasons remaining to win 24 more games, he likely will get there. The issue is that sports tend to invite plenty of that injury and catastrophe, so it’s better to focus instead on what is happening more immediately.
Graduate attackman Payton Cormier, having become a goal-scoring machine over four years, made history during the Virginia men’s lacrosse game Saturday at Richmond. He entered the final quarter with a unique record to break — he needed one more goal to break the all-time career program goals record.
If he had not already, freshman attackman McCabe Millon made his name known to the Division I lacrosse world Saturday. Millon’s five-goal performance in Virginia’s 19-11 win against No. 8 Michigan — his collegiate debut — earned plaudits from teammates and coaches alike, who lined up to sing his praises at the postgame presser.
Virginia men’s lacrosse dominated Klöckner Stadium Saturday in its season opener against Michigan. The No. 3 Cavaliers (1-0, 0-0 ACC) controlled the game from the outset, smothering the No. 8 Wolverines (0-1, 0-0 Big Ten) and cruising to a 19-11 win. A boisterous first half unfolded before a packed stadium, but the atmosphere mellowed as the gulf in the scoreboard stretched wider.
Graduate attacker Connor Shellenberger listened and then laughed. Someone had queried him about graduate transfer Jack Boyden, prompting a hearty chuckle, the type that indicates its owner knows something special.
Misleading and disingenuous, the recent guest column “We must expect more of our institutional leaders” consistently and intentionally mischaracterizes the Israel-Hamas war.
Currently sitting in a three-way tie for fourth place in the ACC, Virginia has fallen slightly behind the success of last year as the Cavaliers shared the regular season conference title with Miami. A 13-5 record is nothing to scoff at, but a 1-4 road record with four costly blowout losses is certainly cause for concern entering the gauntlet of ACC play.
Graduate transfer Jordan Minor arrived at Virginia after four formidable years at Merrimack, expected by many to provide an intimidating interior presence. In his first two months with the Cavaliers, though, he barely made a dent. That changed dramatically in Wednesday night’s showdown with Virginia Tech.
Junior guard Taine Murray is a hard worker, someone who weathered protracted bouts of severely limited playing time. He is an emblem of an old generation of college basketball, the rare player who put his nose to the grindstone instead of putting his name in the transfer portal. He is, finally, a rotation player.
The Cavaliers have had a strange season so far. While they boast a seemingly solid 10-3 record, those losses have looked uncharacteristically ugly. Notre Dame drubbed Virginia 76-54 Saturday, throttling the Cavaliers instantly to deliver a shocking result. The loss altered Virginia’s outlook. A 77-54 loss two weeks ago to then-No. 23 Memphis, viewed by many as hopefully only an outlier, now seems more like a prelude.
Coach Tony Bennett watched as his Virginia men’s basketball team smothered a strong No. 14 Texas A&M team in a 59-47 victory Nov. 29. But while Bennett’s presence is felt most often during the 40 minutes in front of the raucous crowd, his work outside the spotlight of the main court of John Paul Jones Arena was finally showing its merits in arguably the biggest game of the season so far.
Three freshmen emerged from the tunnel before Virginia men’s basketball’s season-opener against Tarleton State, wearing sweatpants and warmup jackets, trailing their teammates. They milled about, high-fiving players cycling through layup lines as their teammates warmed up.
The Virginia starters assembled on the field at Klockner Stadium for a Sept. 26 game against East Tennessee State, forming a circle on the grass, arms winding around each other. The pregame tradition seemed the same as always, except for one startling difference — no Holden Brown.
