For the third time in the last five seasons, the University of Virginia will enter the NCAA Tournament as a number one seed.

After reaching the ACC Tournament title game by beating Louisville and Clemson, the Cavaliers (31-and-2) beat North Carolina for the second time this season, and captured their second conference tournament crown since 2014.

"I like to say put your backpack on and rebound", Guy said. Team's going to be ready, we're going to be ready.

The Cavaliers established themselves as the aggressor in the early going with a 10-0 run and Carolina spent the rest of the first half essentially chasing them. "He is a coach's son as I am and he's been around a lot". "They wait until they get exactly the shot they want".

Government approves referendum bill on 8th Amendment
Politicians debated the draft legislation in the Dail for five hours on Friday. The debate is due on continue today until 4pm.

"If it's to make you play defense a little longer to get that shot, then he's getting double benefits from (that style)", he continued.

Virginia shot only 37 percent in the first half and were 4 of 17 from inside the 3-point arc. Maye led the team with 20 points Saturday, and Berry added 17 and three assists.

Things won't get much easier in the second round. "UMBC, I just started to know more about them". I think that's the past way to go about it. "We shoot 40 percent". Still, coach Roy Williams wasn't using it as an excuse. "That's the bottom line".

The case against North Carolina is pretty simple too. On the next possession, Pinson tried to connect with a teammate for a lob play but Virginia blew it up.

"Yeah, UVA, nothing is really that flashy about them", Harris said. If who you beat matters most to this committee, then the Tar Heels have a real chance.

SIT arrests Naveen Kumar in Gauri Lankesh murder case
Earlier on March 3, Naveen Kumar was taken into custody by the Karnataka police for questioning in connection with the case. An unidentified gunman had on September 5 past year shot dead Gauri, who was known for her writing against communalism.

Guy was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. "As older guys, you develop over the years from (playing few minutes like in) my first year to now, and you grow". You prepare well, you try to improve and you play to win. But every team is attempting to develop its talent internally as much as possible, no matter their individual ratings as high school prospects.

UVa redshirt freshman De'Andre Hunter says, "It'll be a insane atmosphere, I'm sure". Watching Hunter, it is clear that his ceiling is high, and perhaps in short order he can join the growing list of National Basketball Association players who played for Bennett.

Virginia (30-2) is already a lock for the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament and Villanova (28-4) will very likely join the Cavaliers on the top seed line, but the final two spots remain up for grabs with less than 48 hours left before the bracket is unveiled.

"It's special", Devon Hall said. "Not uniformity - unity and diversity". And like (my players) said, there's love here.
