UVa destroys Gonzaga; Final Four in their future?

UVa had a rough few games after exams in San Juan. But they are back and looking even better than in their first win of the season over then #10 Arizona. Yesterday, they destroyed Gonzaga, a team that has been a power player in NCAA basketball for a few years now, 108-87 at the JPJ. They led by 34 at the half, scored a UVa record 18 3-pointers, and Sean Singletary scored a personal record 37 points. UVa is 8-0 at home, but still struggling away from C'ville, 0-1 on the road and 1-2 at neutral sites. UVa next plays Stanford, with vengeance on their minds (Stanford knocked UVa out of the NIT last season) and momentum on their side.

Earlier this season, many sports commentators picked UVa as a sleeper for the Final Four. If they play like this the rest of the season, they may stand a good chance. Even in a tough ACC, games regularly played like this should get UVa a 10-win season in conference and 20-wins overall.

Go Hoos!
