Winners of their last nine out of 10 games, Virginia looks to finish the season strong and attain an ACC title. This really is a sensational team to watch with their suffocating defense; they are deserving of the number one ranking.
Stoutness is what you get with Virginia as they tout the number one defense.
Their defense ranks 1st in PPG, 3rd in FG%, 12th in 3PT%, and 14th in total rebounds. Their offense on the road hasn’t been to shabby either ranking 69th in FG% and 32nd in 3PT%.
This team has been on a mission all season and they aren’t going to let a deflated Pittsburgh squad knock them off-track. It may be Senior day in Pittsburgh, but Virginia’s defense has been something else.
The good thing about having an elite defense is when your offense isn’t clicking on all cylinders, your defense will help you produce relieving buckets.
Losers of 16 straight conference matchups, Pittsburgh has been eager to get to the offseason. They have just been a complete wreck since conference play started and we could see changes coming Pittsburgh’s way.
Their offensive efficiency is porous as they rank 281st, and, while their defense is better, it is still not that great ranking 168th.
There really isn’t anything to rave about for this Pittsburgh team, they are the bottom-feeders of the ACC.
Being optimistic here, it will be Pittsburgh’s Senior day. Maybe they can scrounge up enough willpower to play competitively against one of the top teams in the nation.
