WVU rides balanced attack to UVA upset

No. 25 West Virginia didn't have a player score more than 11 points, but it still managed a 66-57 win at No. 6 Virginia. Tarik Phillip, who made this clutch layup, was one of eight Mountaineers with at least six points.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Most impressive thing about West Virginia's win over Virginia? They did it at Virginia's tempo. 61 possessions in today's game; WVU usually plays about 75 possessions.

Have a feeling it's going to be pretty wild here at the JPJ for Virginia-West Virginia. Students arrived early. Of course the Mountaineers would like to add to the frenzy with their press.

UCLA up 49-45 on Kentucky at half. Will I see that many points in the game between Virginia and West Virginia?

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Just arrived at Virginia in time to watch UCLA-Kentucky before tipoff here against West Virginia. Then I'll drive home to college football in the radio. Not a bad way to spend the day.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Just finished watching a Virginia practice. No surprise, what with Press Virginia here tomorrow, Cavaliers spent a lot of time on press break offense.
