Michigan State’s 61-59 victory in the Sweet 16 at Madison Square Garden on Friday night put an abrupt halt to what had been a dream season for the Cavaliers, who finished 30-7, matched the program record for wins, finished first in the ACC during the regular season and won the school’s first conference tournament title in 38 years.
A wild and unpredictable weekend even by the NCAA tournament's wacky standards claimed a few more unsuspecting victims on Sunday. This March, it is the nothing new. But Virginia, a No. 1 seed and the ACC champion, had no intention of seeing its memorable season come to an abrupt end in a third-round game against No. 8 seed Memphis at PNC Arena.
After a huge win on Saturday, Virginia advances to the ACC tournament final against Duke. The Cavs could also be playing for a potential No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
North Carolina State's T.J. Warren and Duke's Jabari Parker were unanimous selections Monday to the media's all-Atlantic Coast Conference team.
Malcolm Brogdon talked before No. 12 Virginia's final home game about making it a success for seniors Joe Harris, Akil Mitchell and even former walk-on Thomas Rogers, the first building blocks in Tony Bennett's remaking of the Cavaliers.
Jim Boeheim had no concerns when No. 12 Virginia pounded the ball inside to Akil Mitchell and Mike Tobey in the first half against Syracuse's zone.
Malcolm Brogdon scored eight of his 19 points during a decisive second-half run and No. 12 Virginia clinched the top seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament by beating No. 4 Syracuse 75-56 on Saturday.
As it has so often this season, Virginia took command with a second-half spree fed in part by its defense, and in part by a celebrating sell-out crowd, many of whom stood throughout the second half.
All night long, with No. 14 Virginia trailing Virginia Tech, Justin Anderson kept thinking the Cavaliers were about to take control. Then instead, the Hokies would make a run.
The Colts have waived injury-prone offensive lineman Justin Anderson. He was Indy's seventh-round draft pick in 2012 but never played in a game.
The Cavaliers (9-3), in their next-to-last tuneup before beginning Atlantic Coast Conference play, used a 20-5 run in the second half to take command after the Spartans rallied to pull even at 32.
Justin Anderson helped Virginia shake off a lethargic start, leading the Cavaliers with 16 points, four rebounds and three assists in a 57-43 win over Northern Iowa on Saturday.
Joe Harris scored 20 points and Virginia scored 23 unanswered in the first half Tuesday night in a 69-40 victory against Hampton.
MIke Tobey scores 18 points as the Cavaliers improve to 2-1 on the season.
Walk around Colts training camp, and it's like taking a trip around the world.
"It's a great test," said sophomore forward Justin Anderson, who noted that his high school coach at Montrose Christian, Stu Vetter, had his team use secondary break principles taken from Izzo. "I have nothing but respect for Michigan State. We want to make sure that we take it as a challenge and go in there and try to impose our will on defense once again and hopefully we come out with a victory."
Anderson said he was sure Bennett was a millisecond away from pulling Tobey from the game.
