We meet again: Virginia's two opponents this week are teams it already faced this season, providing fans the first glimpse of Coach Tony Bennett against a team that already witnessed his system. "At this point of the year, it's so much about yourself," Bennett said. He said each team puts in wrinkles and makes adjustments, "but the focus has to be on yourself as much as the opposing team."
Baker's back: Guard Calvin Baker played 18 minutes in Sunday's win over North Carolina after failing to record a minute in the previous two games. A senior captain, Baker struggled with turnovers against the Tar Heels but maintained his never-absent swagger. "The coaches know my value to the team," Baker said. "They know every team has to have a leader on the court."
