Defense is a requirement, of course, but at some point, unless you're planning to keep the score in single digits, you have to hit some shots, and UVa really didn't.

Sylven Landesberg got 14, but only shot 5-14. Otherwise? Mike Scott, 9. Jeff Jones 7. Then: 3,2,2,5,2,1,4.

Virginia shot just 32.7% and hit only two threes. It was, basically, as ugly as it sounds.

Miami killed the entity known as Nova Southeast, but what's important is the point guard play: Durand Scott is off to a great start, and to our surprise, he has displaced Malcolm Grant, who transferred from the real 'Nova. So far he has 18 assists in two games. Not bad.

According to the Miami Herald, anyway, Miami signed a huge prospect.


According to the paper, Raphael Akpejiori is 6-9 and 630 lbs, meaning he could eat FSU's former big man, Nigel Dixon, who was a mere 390, for an appetizer.

We're assuming they meant 360 and that it was a dumb typo. But a great one!

And FSU whipped up on Jacksonville, with Solomon Alabi scoring 17 points and grabbing eight boards.

As part of ESPN's basketball marathon, Clemson plays at 10:00 a.m. That's brutal. And it's at Liberty. That's foolish.
