Different feelings, same results for Sammy Zeglinski, Jeff Jones

Virginia guards Sammy Zeglinski and Jeff Jones hit a combined 8 of 15 three-pointers in Thursday's victory over Boston College. Despite their similarly hot afternoons, they had different feelings entering the game.

Zeglinski felt uncomfortable after Tuesday's shootaround. His shots were not falling and had the feeling that many shooters fear. However, Zeglinski excelled early against the Eagles -- he scored 16 first-half points -- and started calling for the ball.

Jones had the opposite feeling. He hit six three-pointers in a row at Wednesday's practice and fell for the surroundings. Something about the arena worked for him, he said. He felt so strongly about this that he called his father and shared this confidence with him. Jones's father told him to bring that confidence onto the court.

These are examples of how the way a players feels at shootaround something has a large effect and sometimes has no effect on the game. But it's one of the many interesting tidbits to come from the locker room after the game.
