A game effort, but no payoff for Virginia


As close as Virginia played UNC in the first half on Saturday, Cavaliers’ coach Dave Leitao knew there was absolutely no margin for error. Grasping for anything that would shake Virginia out of a horrible losing slump, Leitao played more zone defense, spread his offense, shook up his starting lineup, you name it. However, after battling the Tar Heels to an eight-point margin the first 20 minutes, reality set in quickly to open the second half. (Charlottesville Daily Progress)
