Virginia 72, No. 24 UAB 63

This was the win Virginia needed before the ACC begins. As I wrote on Cavaliers Journal earlier, the Cavaliers had not experienced a banner win -- or at least a victory that you could use as testimony that this team...

UAB game could provide hint at ACC fate

Virginia cornerback Ras-I Dowling will return for his senior season, Dowling told Virginia's official athletic Web site. Dowling was likely to be rated one of the top cornerbacks in the draft had he left early. At 6 feet 2 and...

Scott's return bolsters Virginia's lineup

Mike Scott's value to Virginia's rotation cannot be overstated, considering the power forward is the team's top rebounder and only legitimate interior threat on offense. Scott suffered a high ankle sprain in the final minute of the final practice before...

Wednesday links

Virginia assistant Ron Sanchez will see his mentor on the opposing sideline. On Sanchez's own sideline, the Cavaliers are experimenting with the lineup. It helps when Mike Scott is in that lineup. On the other sideline, UAB is succeeding despite...

It's a slow week for stories, which is the reason for a shortage of links. Nonetheless, it appears Mike Scott will return for Wednesday's game against Alabama-Birmingham. While Scott was working to return, future Virginia forward Akil Mitchell was working...
