GW's Thoughts On Virginia
Near the end of Gary Williams's chat with the media a little while ago he was asked if he'd noticed the Cavaliers doing anything differently since the last time the Terps played them.
"They're playing a lot of players, a lot of different combinations," Williams said. "And a lot of it is, is (Assane) Sene healthy? You know, we don't know that going in. You know, you practice like he'll be out there. He didn't play. They say he's getting better. I don't know, so we'll have to see how that goes."
Twelve Cavaliers saw playing time Tuesday against Clemson, though just seven played 10 minutes or more.
Sene, a 7-foot-0, 234-lb. freshman center, has missed Virginia's past two games after spraining an ankle last week. In conference play, Sene was averaging 2.4 points and 4.6 rebounds in 18.8 minutes per game.
Williams also noted the emergence of sophomore guard Jeff Jones, who "has stepped up and played more of a role now since we played 'em last time." He also figured that senior swingman Mamadi Diane will start because it will be the Cavaliers' senior day. And, as Williams pointed out, Diane "has played well against us at times."
"You don't know," Williams said. "The only thing you do know is to get ready to play. In other words, we have to be ready to play. This is about us being ready to play. That's the most important thing. You have to adjust during the game anyway, so hopefully we'll be ready to go."
