The Virginia Cavaliers are 2-0 this year after they defeated Florida by a score of 73-70 in their last game. Virginia led 39-35 at the half and they were able to barely hang on for the win. The Cavaliers shot 44.8% from the field and were out rebounded by a total of 47-30 in the game. Virginia defeated Tarleton State by a score of 80-50 in their first game of the season. The Cavaliers are scoring 76.5 points per game with 35 rebounds per game and 15 assists per game, while giving up 60 points against per game this season. Reece Beekman is averaging 14.5 points per game, 6.0 assists per game, and 3.5 rebounds per game for Virginia this season. Virginia is shooting 46.7% from the field, 60.3% on free throws, and 42.5% on three pointers this year.
Virginia didn’t play their best in their last game, but they were still able to get a huge win against Florida to start the season with two straight wins. The Cavaliers have shot the ball very well through two games, as they are shooting over 46% from the field, but they need to improve their rebounding. North Carolina A&T has allowed 94 and 100 points in their first two games and they have lost by margins of 16 and 48 points. The Aggies are only shooting 34.1% from the field and they are going to really struggle against this Virginia defense. I think we are going to see NC A&T struggle to hit 50, so I am taking the under in this game.
