Loss sours big day by WR Dontrelle Inman

By Steve Yanda

Duke did a pretty decent job of containing Virgina's top receiving threat -- junior wideout Kris Burd -- on Saturday. As for senior wide receiver Dontrelle Inman? Not so much.

Inman caught a career-high 10 passes for 239 yards and a touchdown during Virginia's 55-48 loss at Duke. He fell three yards shy of breaking Ken Shelton's school record for most receiving yards in a game. In 1974, Shelton registered 241 receiving yards against William & Mary.

As Virginia madly scrambled to keep pace with Duke in the second half, Inman was the go-to option for quarterback Marc Verica, who threw for a school-record 417 yards. Burd was well covered for most of the game. He finished with three catches for 42 yards and a touchdown.

"It’s a shame that we couldn’t have a win to look at something like that, for (Inman) and for the production of the offense, to hang our hats on and look forward to," Coach Mike London said. "The individual records, that’s all good and dandy, but what matters is what’s on the scoreboard, what happens at the end of the game."
