	Sophomore forward Anthony Gill finished with 16 points and five rebounds — four offensive — in No. 6 Virginia’s 64-51 win against Florida State.

Walking the walk

If the No. 6 Virginia men’s basketball team needed any additional motivation entering its ACC Tournament Quarterfinals matchup against Florida State, Seminole senior forward Okaro White generously provided the gasoline for its fire.


Terrapins shell-shock No. 5 Cavaliers

Maryland students stormed Gary Williams Court at the Comcast Center as the Terrapins left the ACC in dramatic fashion, winning their final conference regular season game in overtime against No. 5 Virginia, 75-69.


No. 5 Cavs close regular season against Terrapins

The past week has been nothing short of sensational for the No. 5 Virginia men’s basketball team. After earning its first outright regular season ACC championship since 1981 with a dominant win over Syracuse, Virginia claimed its first top-five ranking in over a decade. To top it off, on Monday redshirt sophomore guard Malcolm Brogdon was named co-ACC player of the week after scoring a career-high 19 points against then-No. 4 Syracuse, the first such honor for any Cavalier this season.

	Sophomore forward Anthony Gill led No. 5 Virginia with 15 points, including the game-tying basket to force overtime. However, the Terrapins ultimately upset the Cavaliers in College Park, 75-69.

#GoACC Power Rankings: Week 18

March 1 has come and gone, and there’s a new top dog in the ACC this week. Surprisingly, though, Virginia beating Syracuse for the ACC regular season title wasn’t even my favorite story out of Charlottesville that day. Jim Boeheim is the gift that keeps on giving.

	After missing last year’s win against then-No. 3 Duke, sophomore forward Malcolm Brogdon reveled in the national spotlight, scoring a game and career-high 19 points.

Cavaliers juice No. 4 Orange, 75-56

The Cavaliers won their 13th consecutive game to clinch their sixth outright regular season ACC title — their first since the 1980-1981 season — and secure the top seed in the ACC Tournament.

	Senior forward Akil Mitchell will take the floor at John Paul Jones Arena for the final time Saturday, as the No. 12 Cavaliers host No. 4 Syracuse with a shot at clinching the ACC regular season title.

Moment of truth

On a night when the No. 12 Virginia men’s basketball team made the Hurricanes’ play resemble a brisk wind, picking up its 12th consecutive victory and program-record 15th ACC win, the story wasn’t about the Cavaliers’ 65-40 decimation of Miami.


No. 14 Virginia dominates Notre Dame, 70-49

Notre Dame looked helpless as the Cavaliers poured on basket after basket, and Virginia cruised to a 70-49 win. Helped by 15 points from both senior forward Akil Mitchell and redshirt sophomore forward Anthony Gill, the Cavaliers picked up their school record 14th ACC win of the season.


#GoACC Basketball Power Rankings: Week 16

It was quite a week for the ACC. The outgoing conference pariahs known as the Dirty Terps came about as close as you can to upsetting the Blue Devils, Maryland’s hated rivals and the darlings of the ACC, at Cameron Indoor.


#GoACC Power Rankings: Week 15

Duke at North Carolina, Syracuse at Pitt and a possible snow day this week, what more can an ACC basketball fan ask for? Answer: If all four of those teams could somehow lose.


Come together

With four ACC games in eight days, it hasn’t been easy for Virginia. The Cavaliers have had to grind out wins much more than they did earlier in conference play. They have not had the luxury of lofty first-half leads, forcing them to rely on their depth to outlast teams and pull away in the second half.
