Very intrigued to watch VT in ACC season this year

I wasn't at all high on you guys this offseason because I thought the losses of LeDay and Allen removed a certain important inside toughness aspect and an elite penetrating (respectively) skill set from your squad. I was further diminished in confidence when I saw Outlaw wouldn't be playing... but you guys shoot the 3 as well as anyone, which means you can win some shootout situations and beat most really good teams when things come together.

Obviously the flipside concern is the defense. Strong defense (as long as the offense is still passable) is the most consistent way to win game in and game out, whether on the road or at home. You can bypass a couple streaky offnights shooting with consistently strong D and still eek out some wins that would be blowouts with weak defense and an offnight shooting. That's the thing I like so much about UVA's chances when our offense comes and goes. Of course, it can be limiting in the postseason sometimes, as we've all seen.
