It will be a battle of wills and basketball styles Sunday night in Charlotsville, Virginia, site of the University of Virginia, as teams from two of college basketball's best conferences go head-to-head.

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.

Tuesday night saw the Virginia Cavaliers put forth one of their best efforts thus far in the Dave Leitao era in a 71-51 drubbing of the Miami Hurricanes. Once again Sean Singletary lead the way but the team effort was fueled by an energetic University Hall crowd.

The Virginia Cavaliers contributed a 72-57 win as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. The Hoos stomped on the gas pedal in the second half and ran away with the victory. Sean Singletary shined and freshman Mamadi Diane had yet another impressive game. Inside check the recap and some quotes from Diane after the game.
