Virginia 70, North Carolina State 62

Virginia secured the first ACC victory of the Tony Bennett era in typical Bennett-ball fashion: tough defense, smart basketball down the stretch. Jeff Jones said Virginia needs to keep opponents in the 60s to win the ACC this season. Bennett admitted the Cavaliers are "not going to dominate too many teams."

For those who watched the game, I'm curious what you think. E-mail me at bermanz@washpost.com or leave comments below. In the mean time, here are some post-game notes:
