#10 Virginia will get a giant test this Wednesday when they head into California to take on the Golden Bears.
Both teams enter play with 9 wins this season and have both won back to back games.
#10 Virginia Cavaliers
The Virginia Cavaliers have rebounded from their lone loss of the season against West Virginia with back to back wins coming into this one.
The Cavaliers are one of the deepest teams in nation as they have 9 players who are averaging at least 5.7 points per game.
Coming in off a dominant performance against Robert Morris, the Cavaliers will look for a repeat of what was their most impressive defensive performance of the season.
Holding Robert Morris to just 39 points, the suffocating defense allowed them to shoot just 23.9 percent from the field.
Isaiah Wilkins has a lot to do with the Cavaliers being one of the best defensive teams in the nation. Wilkins leads the team with 17 steals and has added 13 blocks this season, as he continues to be a force in the paint.
California Golden Bears
California is quite happy to see Jabari Bird back in the lineup.
Bird, who missed 6 games earlier this season with back spasms, comes in off a performance that saw him go for 25 with four 3 pointers in a win over Cal Poly.
Along side Bird, Ivan Rabb has been a dominant force force and a big part of the reason why California is currently sitting with 9 wins.
Rabb went 7 for 10 in the win over Cal Poly for 18 points as his explosiveness and ability to get to the bucket is incredibly impressive.
However, Rabb continues to see limited time, especially when games are close in days, as he tries to battle a hand injury.
California is a perfect 8-0 at home this season, but is just 3-5 ATS in that span.
