First Half Analysis: This is UVA basketball at it's finest. Mucking up the game, slowing down BC's offense. The Eagles had a few good minutes with some big shots from Langford, but otherwise than that they haven't been able to do much on offense. Eagles are shooting 31% from the floor. Seeing some of the bench players like Williams and Vander Baan with big minutes has been interesting.
