Bootleg Video: Dave Leitao Post-Game

Not often does the visiting head coach take questions in the Maples Pavilion press room, but Virginia head coach Dave Leitao graciously sat down after an NIT opening round disappointing defeat to Stanford. The first-year ACC head man had comments on the Cardinal worth noting. Additionally, you may care for the insights into his own team, who will host Stanford in the 2006-07 season.

Leitao's first year at Virginia officially came to an end Tuesday night after a 49-65 loss at Stanford in the postseason NIT.  While the Cavaliers have struggled on the road all year, Stanford held them to their lowest scoring output of the season.  The head coach of the ACC program talked about the problems that plagued them at Maples Pavilion - some of their own doing and some imposed by an inspired Stanford squad.  He addressed the surprising three-point shooting by the Cardinal against the Cavs' zone defense, while also praising Stanford's team defensive performance.
