Virginia practices without Landesberg, prepares for Boston College
Virginia practiced for 55 minutes at the Greensboro Coliseum in front of a few dozen fans and reporters. The Cavaliers do not exactly draw the crowd of North Carolina or Duke. In fact, Tony Bennett wore his credential around his neck. You think Roy WIlliams wears a credential in the Greensboro Coliseum?
Sylven Landesberg was not present. Landesberg did not make the trip, and Bennett said afterward that he has not officially heard whether Landesberg made a finally decision on his future. Bennett emphasized Landesberg is welcomed back to the program, although Landesberg would need to be in class next week after spring bring concludes. As reported Monday, Calvin Baker is not with the team, either.
The team did not participate in the dunk-offs that you see on occasions in these open practice sessions -- few were there to watch it -- and ran an organized practice that started with stretching, followed by shooting drills and dribbling drills.
Bennett came over early in practice and pointed to the upper reaches of the arena and said that's where he sat when he came to the ACC tournament before.
After practice, reporters were allowed in the locker room for 15 minutes. It's fair to see there's excitement about the ACC tournament, and there's much intrigue about what's in store this offseason (Landesberg and Tristan Spurlock are two names you'll hear often).
Much more to come on Cavaliers Journal after tomorrow's story is written.
