"I don't remember any other time when we had four, and I think they're all legit," said Virginia's Dom Starsia, who in his 16th season and is the dean of the league's coaches. "I think everyone knew that for Carolina, this is going to be a peak team for them. Maryland is probably a little further along than we'd hoped they would be at this point, frankly."
"When we didn't have Ben early in the year and he was hurt, there was a big hole there," Virginia coach Dom Starsia said. "You could feel it. Especially as Ben has gotten stronger in the second half of the season, we look to him. It doesn't mean anybody else is afraid to make a play. I think everybody looks over their shoulder to see where he's going to be."
