Virginia Basketball: What happened to Keith Jenifer?

            If you followed Virginia Men’s Basketball in the early 2000s you’ll remember that a few of Pete Gillen’s players went from highly touted recruits, to falling into legal trouble, to transferring into obscurity.  For example, as a sophomore in 2002, Virginia shooting guard Jermaine Harper was arrested for a DUI and suspended from the team.  He later transferred...

Virginia Basketball’s Big Transfer: Anthony Gill

In response to the slew of comments on my first article chiding me for leaving out redshirt sophomore Anthony Gill, I have decided to dedicate an article to the University of Virginia Men’s Basketball transfer. The Basics Gill is a 6’8” forward, weighing in at around 231 lbs.  He transferred from USC (the phallus, not the prophylactic) in the spring of...

Virginia Basketball: Barnette and Jesperson jump ship

  Last week Taylor Barnette announced that he was leaving the University of Virginia Men’s basketball team.  This follows the announcement from Paul Jesperson a few months earlier that he was transferring.  What’s more surprising than having two players transfer in the same offseason is how unsurprising it is to UVa basketball.  Since Tony Bennett took the head job nine players...

Paul Jesperson to transfer from Virginia

According to Whitelaw Reid, Virginia's Paul Jesperson will transfer. A source tells me that #UVa sophomore guard Paul Jesperson has been granted his release and will transfer. More details to come. — Whitelaw Reid (@WhiteysWorld365) April 15, 2013 Jesperson's departure comes largely due to a jampacked roster at Virginia.

Coach K concerned over player safety after Virginia fans rush court

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is no stranger to fans storming the court. His No. 3 Blue Devils have lost four games this season. All have been on the road, and the opposing fans have rushed the court each time. Virgnia fans did the same following their 73-68 upset over Duke on Thursday night, and Coach K expressed concern over it after the game. “When we’ve lost in the last...

The Virginia Dilemma

The closer we get to Selection Sunday, the more popular bracketology becomes. And every year there are a few programs - right or wrong - who feel like they're going to get shafted. This year those programs are Virginia and St. Mary's. The problem is that reliance on RPI is dumb. It's easy to game. It can be a decent metric, but there are much better systems out there...

Virginia Win over NC State- Not an Upset

Virginia Win over NC State- Not an UpsetAt 15-5 (5-2 in ACC), The Virginia Cavaliers are the real deal.  While ESPN, CBS Sports, and every other major media outlet is labeling Virginia’s 58-55 victory over No.19 NC State an upset, I think that’s a bunch of bollocks. Contrary to popular belief, the Cavaliers were actually 3.5 point favorites in Vegas going into last night’s...

Virginia's Malcolm Brogdon will take a medical redshirt

Malcolm Brogdon has been out since having foot surgery in early March and his recovery has been a slow one.  As such Brogdon will take a medical redshirt for the 2012-13 season. Here's more from "Malcolm is an important part of the program's future, so the plan to redshirt him will allow for his foot to fully recover," Bennett said. "...

Virginia guard Evans could be sidelined for opener

Virginia could be without point guard Jontel Evans when it opens the season at George Mason. Evans, the Cavaliers' lone scholarship senior, suffered a stress fracture in his right foot while in practice in late September and had surgery Oct. 2. Evans says he expects to be back in about six weeks. The Cavaliers will also be without Malcolm Brogdon, who can also play point guard...

Colorado and Virginia land West Coast guards

Both the Colorado Buffaloes and Virginia Cavaliers dipped into the west to land important guard commits on Labor Day, with top-75 combo guard Jaron Hopkins set for Colorado, and point guard London Perrantes declaring for the Cavaliers. Hopkins is Colorado’s first recruit in the 2013 class, while Perrantes has joined Devon Hall as future backcourt players in the Virginia game [...]

Virginia and VCU to play a home and home?

Unlike college football, college basketball actually rewards difficult schedules. The NCAA Committee repeatedly states that RPI doesn't play a major role in their decisions, and then they promptly put forth a field of 68 in which RPI is obviously the far most important determining factor. Of course, RPI is a lousy way of tracking individual team strength, but in composite rankings...

Is there any doubt Virginia’s Mike Scott is the ACC Player of the Year?

Coming off a loss Tuesday night at Clemson, Virginia was looking a little shaky. Despite a 19-6 record they had fallen to 6-5 in the ACC with a dangerous Maryland team coming to Charlottesville. Frankly if the Cavs had lost Saturday that would be the NCAA bubble off in the horizon, but as he’s done all year Mike Scott carried Virginia. In this game Scott had 25 points and 7 rebounds...

Joe Harris: Virginia's underrated star

Joe Harris isnt going to grab most peoples attention when the Virginia Cavaliers go through their layup lines before games. Harris looks like just another guy on the team. Mike Scott? Asasne Sene? Yeah, those bigs easily stand out. But not Harris, until the game starts. Hes sort of like fine wine to the average basketball observer. After a while, though, watching him come off...

Mike Scott scored a career-high 33 points and No. 24 Virginia held off a second-half rally by Seattle for an 83-77 victory Wednesday night. Playing its first game as a ranked team in more than four seasons, the Cavaliers (10-1) watched Seattle (2-8) shoot its way to an 8-point first-half lead, then built their own 14-point advantage with less than 9 minutes remaining before being...
