Hokies Head to Charlottesville to Battle #2 UVA

         (WSLS) -The Commonwealth Clash renews this weekend, this time in Charlottesville.
         The first time around the Hokies nearly pulled off the upset, falling by three at Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg.
          UVA hasn't missed a beat. They stand at 26-1 and the second ranked team in the country.
          Hokies coach Buzz Williams is clearly a fan of UVA head man Tony Bennett.

      "He's as good a person as you will find in the business. He's done it the right way. He's not only respected as a coach, he's respected as a human. He's done it in the best league in the country, at a place that had been up and down, " explains Buzz.

        Virginia is expected to be without Justin Anderson as he continues to heal from a broken hand. London Perrantes remains day-to-day with a broken nose.  Tip time is set for 4pm Saturday from John Paul Jones Arena.
