Double Bonus: FSU

Jontel Evans

The Virginia men’s basketball team had one last chance at an ACC road victory on Thursday night, but the trip to Tallahassee ended in another frustratingly close loss for the Hoos. After rallying from an 11-point deficit to take a late lead, UVa dropped the 53-51 decision when Michael Snaer scored in the final five seconds for Florida State. The “Double Bonus” takes a look at some of the key pieces of the game.

Point Guard Play

After the Florida State game, a lot of Virginia fans have dialed in on the defensive strategy against Jontel Evans . The Seminoles sagged off of Evans heavily to help clog up the paint early in possessions and refused to help off of wing shooters when UVa went to Evans in the on-ball screen offense late in possessions. All of the chatter prompted me to take a look at the Double Bonus article for the UNC win back at the start of the ACC season.
