Space considerations forced this to be cut from the dead-tree game story, but it would be completely lame of me not to mention that Virginia actually scored 10 points in the third quarter last night.
This is significant because, as mentioned in the middle of last week, Virginia had scored only 42 points in its last 29 third quarters.
The Cavaliers had never had two scoring plays in a third quarter in that span. And last night’s 10 points (in a 31-0 demolition of Maryland) were their most in a third quarter since the 2005 Music City Bowl.
