When: 1:00 pm, Sunday, Feb. 15
Where: JPJ Arena, Charlottesville, VA
Right now, Clemson has sole possession of third place in the ACC. Thanks to Maryland's 83-73 win over VT and Wake's win against FSU.
So, what is it going to be tomorrow? This UVA game could be another trap game. To be fair, however, UVA is not nearly as strong, physical, or talented as FSU.
Nonetheless, the Wahoos have Sylven Landesberg an ACC Freshman-of-the-year candidate. If UVA could get a few wins, he might even have a chance of winning. Currently, Landesberg averages 17.8 ppg and 5.9 rpg. At least he's not a high-scoring guard- which is the type of player we have been having problems.
So tomorrow, we control our destiny. Should we win, root for Duke to lose in Chestnut Hill at 5:00 pm. A Duke loss would place us 2nd in the ACC behind UNC.
