Shoot like ya'll did against W&M in the CAA tourney and UNCW will win.

And in fairness, a line of 8.5 for a slow paced team like UVA is a monster number and is a line that screams to bet UVA. In my eyes there is no way the line should be that high, but Vegas always seems to know.

Yeah, Vegas is betting on UVA and trying to get people to bet UNCW.

Exactly. So tread carefully in betting in favor of your Seahawks. Also is it the largest line of any of the 5/12 games, which everyone knows provides "upsets". I like UNCW in this game, but the Vegas line has me really contemplating how this game will go.

I'd take the 8.5 to anyone who wants to give it to me!

Never bet on your own team. Emotion clouds judgement.

I made a killing this year betting the overs on UNCW :). Usually i agree. But i really feel like even if we don't win, we won't lose by much. 8.5 for UVA is prob like 15 for a normal team.

Agree. We could see two different UVA's, and possibly see them both in the same game.

We won the CAAT by playing much better defense in the tournament then we had previously, especially during the 2nd half. We'll have to play 110% UNCW basketball both halves to upset UVA and shock all of our doubters. We can absolutely do it, and I expect them to.

The keys to our success all season have been to shoot well and keep Cacok out of foul trouble. If we do both of these things it will be a good game...one we can win. When we don't do these things we typically lose.

I am worried that UVA has faced up tempo teams like Louisville and UNC and was able to slow them down - beat both. I hope we can rattle them with some 3's early in the game!

Go Hawks!!

Good points except neither of those teams shoot the 3 well at all.
