Cavaliers aim to bounce back against Seminoles
The Cavaliers (14-9, 5-5 ACC), who have dropped three straight games, are looking to regain their defensive identity after giving up 85 points against the Terrapins, the most they have allowed all season. Opponents had averaged only 62 points per game against the Cavaliers prior to Monday's matchup, but the Terrapins shot an impressive 70 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from behind the arc during the first half alone, trouncing the Cavaliers 85-66.
Cavaliers shift focus to post 'D'
Trying to stop really good guards has been Virginia's primary task in its last three games. There was Ish Smith of Wake Forest, then Malcolm Delaney of Virginia Tech. On Monday night in College Park, Md., it was Greivis Vasquez.
Tonight, UVa's focus will shift when Florida State comes to town.
The Cavaliers, coming off their most wretched performance of the season against the Terrapins -- a listless 85-66 road loss -- must contend with FSU big man Solomon Alabi as they try and snap a three-game losing streak.
