Everyone on this board focuses so much on scoring.

And I get it. Scoring is fun.

But if UVA can play defense at that level (v Providence) on even half of its nights in league play, it will win 12+ games in the ACC.

Offense will be hit and miss with this team. We know that. This team has to be married to three things:

(1) Protect the ball,
(2) Hit the glass,
(3) Defend like crazy.

We aren’t going to be a Top 30 offensive team. The pieces just aren’t here. However, we can be a Top 75 offensive team. And if you pair that with a Top 5 defense, then this team can be really, really, really good.
