Virginia at South Florida preview

Virginia at South Florida
When: 7:30 p.m.
Where: Tampa

Getting defensive: Coach Tony Bennett was not pleased after Friday's season-opening win because his team allowed Longwood to score 72 points, including 45 in the second half. Bennett has preached patience while his defensive system is installed, but South Florida features more talent than the Lancers. A similarly poor defensive effort could result in Bennett's first loss as Virginia's coach.

Front-court woes: Virginia will play its second consecutive game without center Assane Sene (suspension) and forward Jamil Tucker (leave of absence), leaving the Cavaliers thin in the front court. South Florida has good size, including Clinton native Gus Gilchrist. Forwards Mike Scott and Jerome Meyinsse will be Virginia's top inside options.

Gloomy in the sunshine: Virginia has lost its last 10 games in the state of Florida, including seven at Florida State, two at Miami and one in the ACC tournament. The Cavaliers have not won in Florida since 2001. They beat the Bulls in Charlottesville last season in their only meeting. Sylven Landesberg scored 21 points in the 77-75 victory.

If I can get this game on TV, I'll be interested to see Mr. Gilchrist in action as I've heard so much about him.

I can't say I'm predicting a win tonight, but I want to see how UVa does in a game that counts against an opponent bigger and better than Longwood.
