Wake Forest 69, Virginia 57

The first ACC loss came later than most expected, but Virginia finally registered a conference loss Saturday against Wake Forest. Much to discuss about this game and the team in the coming days, but I'm curious what you think. Please leave comments below or e-mail me bermanz@washpost.com. Here are some quick notes from after the game:

- There was much discussion about keeping Sylven Landesberg and Mike Scott on the sideline in the first half with two fouls. Scott was charged with his second foul while Virginia trailed by four points. By halftime, the team was losing by 19 points. Here's what Bennett said:

“Usually, I hold a guy out if he gets two fouls, and I just stuck to that. We talked about that on the bench in one of our timeouts. And then all of the sudden, there’s about two and a half, three minutes left, and we thought, ‘Boy, to put Sylven back in now would be foolish if he picked one up.’

“...But I might have to reconsider thinking about that. It’s something you just have to have a feel for. Being down what we were at the half, 19, is hard to overcome against a team like this.”

- Bennett confirmed Calvin Baker did not travel because of a "coach's decision", but he did not elaborate.

There should be no panic after this game for the 'hoos. They shot poorly from every area, and the foul trouble exacerbated that. In the end though, it's an ACC loss on the road to very talented team. The bounce back at home on Thursday against VTech will be the biggest sign of things to come.
