CTB going to Huff when down by 4 was the coaching milestone of this game

6:52 to go. Down by 4. Our offense is bogging down. CTB brings in Huff. It totally changes the spacing on the floor. Jerome drives twice for 2 baskets. Dre drives for 1 basket. Ties game.

Huff gets the block on the other end before the 3-pointer that was overruled. Dre drives and dishes to Huff to give UVA a 2-point lead.

Huff picks up a bad pass for a turnover, then sets a screen on TWO guys to free a Kyle Guy three.

Then Kyle hits another killer three for a 6 point lead at 1:00 minute to go.

CTB switches Huff for Diakite’s D to close it out.

This was big game and a big win. But this was also a significant coaching shift. CTB traded Huff’s offensive impact for D. And brought Huff in with the game on the line.

CTB will take more risks like this to give our Hoo's more ways to win.
