Early games of the postseason NIT nominally yield yawns, but tonight's opening round match-up between Stanford and Virginia is a headline affair. Officially named the Cavaliers, Virginia has also carried the moniker of the "Wahoos" or "Hoos" for more than a century. More than a quirky nickname, this ACC squad has great young talent and possibly the best backcourt you will have seen all year.
