The NCAA Tournament continues with second round play on Friday. In this game it’s a South region showdown between the UMBC Retrievers and the Virginia Cavaliers at the Spectrum Center.
This will be the third meeting ever between the two teams and the first since 2005. The Cavaliers have won the previous two games.
Three years ago the UMBC Retrievers were one of the worst teams in college basketball, and now here they sit in the NCAA Tournament.
They have a big task on their hand though in this game as they take on the top seed, the Virginia Cavaliers.
The Retrievers will need to play a near-perfect game, but the offense is going to need to be good to start. The Cavaliers are a great defensive team and the Retrievers need to figure out a way to solve it.
If they can get out to a fast start it might give them enough confidence for the offense to have success.
On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Cavaliers who use their defense to have success. Coming into this game they are giving up only 53.4 points per game.
The offense only averages 67.5 points per game, but when the defense is that good, it doesn’t really matter how much the offense scores.
The Cavaliers need to just play their game and be the team to get out to the fast start but especially on the defensive end of the floor.
