Virginia's Tony Bennett on collapsing during the game: "Been a little under the weather the last couple of days. when you're squatting and get up quick, I just blacked out a little bit. I've had more Powerade than I've ever had in my life so hopefully I'm hydrated well. That's happened before, when you get up quick and get a little dizzy."

Virginia's Tony Bennett is using the small chairs normally only used in his timeout huddles in the second half. Even when he's stood up briefly, he hasn't made any quick movements after collapsing at the end of the first half due to dehydration.

Virginia coach Tony Bennett told the broadcast crew that he was fine after dehydration caused him to collapse at the end of the first half. He's back coaching the second half, but looks like he's decided to sit instead of standing/walking the sideline.
