Balanced Cavaliers look to douse Flames

After consecutive victories against Davidson and Navy, the Virginia men’s basketball team is working to regain its stride after suffering its first loss last week at the hands of No. 12 Virginia Commonwealth. The Cavaliers seek to continue that stride when they face Liberty at John Paul Jones Arena Saturday at 4 p.m. in the first round of the Corpus Christi Challenge.

Brick house

The Virginia men’s basketball team cruised to a 67-42 victory against Navy Tuesday night. All 15 active players saw playing time and four scored in double figures. Virginia fans should be pleased with the team’s performance. Or should they?

Cavaliers sail past Midshipmen, 67-42

Just a minute and a half into the Virginia men’s basketball team’s game against Navy, Midshipmen sophomore center Will Kelly hit a jumper to tie the game at 2-2. Just over a minute later, Virginia sophomore center Mike Tobey hit a baseline jumper off a slick pass from senior guard Joe Harris to break the tie, and the Cavaliers would never look back.

Technical foul

It was supposed to be a clash of in-state powerhouses, with the result decided by the team that dictated the pace. Instead, the referees took center stage Tuesday night.

Ballyhooed Cavaliers commence hoops season

After a 73-68 win against then-No. 3 Duke in front of a raucous crowd at John Paul Jones, it appeared that the Virginia men’s basketball team could make an ACC and even NCAA Tournament run behind the hot hand of then-junior guard Joe Harris and the steady post presence of then-junior forward Akil Mitchell. Instead, the Cavaliers were stood up for the Big Dance after dropping two of their final three games to close the regular season and getting thrashed by N.C.

Expectation adjustments

**Last March, Virginia got thumped by a disappointment. N.C. State had entered the 2012-13 campaign as the first consensus ACC favorite not hailing from Tobacco Road since roughly the Paleolithic Age.

Virginia fans, do you know what the Charlie Brown walk is? If you answered no, you’re probably more familiar with it than you think.

Deep Virginia lineup gives Bennett flexibility

Last season’s finish may have been a disappointment for the No. 24 Virginia’s men’s basketball team — they missed the NCAA tournament and lost in the semifinals of the NIT — but for the Cavaliers, it was less the end of a journey than a step in the development of the program. The team lost four players going into the season — two to graduation and two to transfer — but a talented recruiting class and the addition of redshirt sophomores Malcolm Brogdon from injury and Anthony Gill from transfer may ease the absence.
