Tony Bennett not deterred by blizzard-induced break in schedule
Virginia played at noon last Saturday. The Cavaliers will play Virginia Tech at 8 p.m. this Saturday.
In between will be hours more than seven days that included a bus ride to and from College Park, a stop for Dairy Queen Blizzards that preceded an actual blizzard, breakfast at the Greenbelt Marriott -- Tony Bennett told ESPN's Andy Katz it was one of the best omelette bars the team's encountered this season -- and preparations for two rivals.
But no games. Not your typical week in the ACC.
"If that's the biggest frustration we have," Bennett said, "I think we'll all be okay."
Readers in the Washington area can confirm what Bennett has heard, that it was a "great call getting out of there for the safety of the players and the people coming to the game", but it required the Cavaliers to quickly refocus.
"We got to catch up on some reading and look at the scenery on the way back," Bennett said.
He said Virginia has a longer breaks that the week in between games, and shorter span between games than the three games in five days that await the Cavaliers. But he understands what awaits Virginia is pivotal for the team's season.
"Our schedule the way it's set up was really challenging," Bennett said. "This certainly adds to it. We'll see where we stand at the end of it."
