Solomon Tat's unknown contributions preceded his unexpected playing time

Tony Bennett: Recent struggles 'part of rebuilding'

There's sometimes a misconception that Tony Bennett did not go through the rebuilding at Washington State, considering the Virginia coach inherited the Cougars just as the program was beginning to emerge in the Pacific-10. However, Bennett was his father's top...

Mike Scott's struggles hurt the Cavaliers

It's a given that players have bad games, but it's hard to find a game in Virginia forward Mike Scott's career that was worse than the one Scott experienced in Tuesday's loss to Miami. Scott missed all seven of his...

Sylven Landesberg's injured thigh

Sylven Landesberg's various ailments are often evident after games, when the Virginia star waits in the locker room for interviews while nursing whatever hurts following 30-plus minutes in which Landesberg remains the object of defense's attentions. After Tuesday's loss to...

Halftime: Miami 33, Virginia 32

Well, the team is in it for the second half. That's progress, considering recent events. Sylven Landesberg has half of Virginia's points and connected on all four of his three-pointers. He had not made more than two three-pointers in a...

The future at point guard for Virginia basketball

Virginia signed five players for the Class of 2010, and not a single player is a point guard. When the class was put together, the Cavaliers were young at point guard with sophomore Sammy Zeglinski and freshman Jontel Evans. However,...

As excited as Virginia fans became when the Cavaliers jumped to a quick start in the ACC season, it never changed the fact that Tony Bennett was not hired to win this season. He was hired to build a program...

Virginia men's basketball prepares for Miami, baseball reaches No. 1

Virginia looks to rebound against Miami on Tuesday night, although it's clear at this point that rebuilding the program comes without a quick fix. Maybe Tony Bennett needs to lose the necktie. Or maybe he just needs players such as...

Sylven Landesberg's lack of free throws

When opposing coaches talk about what makes Sylven Landesberg so difficult, one of the first attributes they point to is Landesberg's ability to draw fouls and hit free throws. The sophomore guard has hit 82.2 percent of his free throws...

Will Sherrill tries to break slump, Virginia baseball wins rubber match

Will Sherrill was one of the feel-good stories earlier this season, but by his own admission, he must improve his performance. Virginia's opponent on Tuesday, Miami, has a coach on the hot seat. In baseball, the Cavaliers finished with a...
