For Virginia to avoid the upset at home vs Davidson today it must defend the 3pt shot. Davidson leads the nation in 3pt FG made at 13 per-game. Here's how. 1. Contain the ball, avoid the help and contest the shot. 2. When UVA helps, how quickly can they recover to the shooter. 3. Guards must rebound the long shot misses.

Picking every game in this year's Big Ten/ACC Challenge

Overall, it might look pretty close, with the ACC and Big Ten both filled with good teams (and even a few elite ones). But go game by game and things do not look good for the Big Ten.

Virginia's new pace making a difference?

The Cavaliers end most seasons as one of America's slowest teams, based on possessions per game, but their pace has improved notably this season. That should only make things harder on opponents.
