The Virginia Cavaliers will face the Arizona State Sun Devils today at 1:00 P.M. EST. Come here to discuss the game before, during, and after.
Here is the opponent preview from Brandon Lloyd https://virginia.lockerroomaccess.com/2019/11/24/uva-opponent-preview-arizona-state/
Pretty sure Brandon just looks at Kenpom and or Vegas for his predictions. He predicted the Vegas spread yesterday and Vegas says 9.5 today
It’s all good though. As we get into ACC play, with more familiar opponents, I’d like to see some more X and Os in these previews
Two Arizona State names stand out from their recruiting days. Neither for good reasons.
Romello White (Class of '16) claimed a Virginia offer on the eve of Mamadi’s commitment announcement. It confused the heck out of all of us that knew what was coming. In hindsight, I think Romello got the call that UVA was no longer recruiting him. So you were recruiting me? Yeah sure we wanted you, kid. But our spots are full, sorry. Boom, scholarship offer! lol
Taeshon Cherry was allegedly the USC recruit mentioned in the original Yahoo report on the FBI investigation. He flipped to ASU pretty quickly after it came out.
The defense remains locked in but someone is going to have to make some shots. Clear advantage with Huff.
Watching Huff is so fun because we’ll miss a shot, and it looks like it’ll be rebounded be ASU, and then tall boy Huff tips it out and we get it back
Was just gonna say its worrisome to be so great on defense and only be up 6 and then that by Casey!
Morsell is playing great inside so far. And then we end the half like that
Not looking good
Morsell needs to continue to drive and score down low. Thats where he will be most utilized
We need some buckets straight out against the press. Few easy ones will help out.
Need to end halves better. Kihei has got to get a timeout in that spot instead of throwing the ball into the middle. Little bit sloppy with the ball, especially in loose ball situations. Gotta grab the with two hands.
Hopefully we will start the 2nd half well like we did against UMASS
Perfect game for Casey to breakout a little bit with their ball pressure/overplay style. They dare you to beat them off the bounce. He’s our best option doing that. Rough half for Kihei. They’re not helping off the bigs on penetration. That’s tough for him.
Predicting big second half for Mamadi. Great point on not helping off bigs to Kehei. Thats how we used to play Chris Corchiani back in day vs NC State. Crotty was the master at that
Where are the fouls???
Reece & the “muck it up” stuff is funny. He hates us for some reason…
Arizona state is getting away with almost anything they want
All out of sorts on offense. Need a good set out of this timeout. Diakite is frustrated and in his own head right now.
We’re screwed, we are shooting awful, they are getting every shot in
