The Nittany Lions are coming off a narrow victory over Davidson. Virginia, which has won all four of its home games in the ACC/Big 10 Challenge, is coming off a gritty win over Cleveland State in the Cancun Challenge. In that game, Virginia guard Sylven Landesberg had his best performance of the season (20 points, five rebounds, five assists) and walk-on forward Will Sherrill came out of nowhere to register career highs in just about every statistical category.
Jamil Tucker has started practicing with the team but won’t be in uniform for tonight’s game. No word on when he’ll suit up for a game. The Cavaliers are 5-4 all-time in the Challenge, including a 4-0 home record. Tonight’s game is the eighth all-time meeting between Virginia and Penn State with the Cavaliers leading the series 5-2. The teams haven’t met since the 1984-85 season. The ACC has won all 10 previous challenges.
This is the first game in the ACC/Big Ten challenge. I like the ACC team to start things off right for thier conference. Take Virginia in this one.
