All about matchups- UVA matches up very well against Louisville, it's why they've beaten them handily twice this year (not to mention last year too). However, UVA couldn't beat Syracuse to save their lives.

I agree they are a bad matchup for Louisville, but I wouldn't say they beat them handily, especially the 1st game. They won the 1st game by what, 8 points? The 2nd by 16 was a little more lopsided in the final score, but UVA trailed at half and UofL was missing 3 major contributors. I think they are pretty evenly matched from a talent standpoint, but like you said, a bad matchup for sure.

Just announced that he is transferring from UVA for his last season. If I'm not mistaken, he will be a grad transfer and eligible to play immediately. Rumor has it he is interested in Missouri and reuniting with Cuonzo.

Funny thing is if he would have just toughed it out... He would have been the man the last two years here!

And had he stayed at TN, he'd now be out of eligibility and would not have returned to the NCAAT. He may not have played a lot behind Punter and Baulkman. It was probably a good move on his part. UVA degrees are good to have.

He was a better point guard than Punter or Baulkman... He would have played the one with punter sliding over to the 2 which is a better position for him. We could have easily been a NCAAT team with better and deeper point guard play... It was our weakest overall position this year with post play being a close second.

DT has some weird stats. Good foul shooter at TN and it fell to 60% this past year. Best rebounding year by far was at TN. Horrible 3-point percentage at TN and very good percentage at UVA.

Darius Thompson always struck me as a player made for full court basketball, not Cuonzo's system and especially not Virginia's system. I would hire a dog to coach the basketball team before I would hire Virginia's coach.

It's not very entertaining, but it's pretty effective. Bennett is one of the best coaches in the country. His style just isn't fan friendly.

Agreed, but filling Thompson bowling is part of the coach's job here. Tennessee fans would jab there eyes out before watching that. He would be loathed.

You're right, but he is tied to Cuonzo, so he's a poor man's Chris Paul. Just read some of these posts


I'm not saying Thompson can't shoot, but he should go to Kwe for shooting advice

Weird that we'll visit Columbia MO next year and square off against Cuonzo and Thompson. And with Michael Porter who knows...may be tough for teams to get out of there with a W.
