Zeglinski’s Hot Hand Helps UVa Prevail

Sammy Zeglinski scored a season-high 21 points in Virginia’s upset of Boston College Thursday afternoon.

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Heading into the Virginia men’s basketball team’s opening-round ACC Tournament game against Boston College, the question was how the Hoos would get by without leading scorer Sylven Landesberg , who was indefinitely suspended for academic reasons prior to the season finale against Maryland. If you had asked the attending media the answer to that question, the consensus would have been, they won’t get by. After all, how do you replace a routine 20-point scorer?

Sammy Zeglinski provided the answer: a 21-point scorer.
