Courtside blog: UM-Virginia

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. -- Checking in before the 23rd-ranked Canes (15-2, 1-2 ACC) take on the Cavaliers (10-4, 2-0 ACC) here at John Paul Jones Arena. This is without question the nicest arena in the ACC. 

I'll provide some thoughts and observations as this one goes along. Feel free to follow on Twitter. The game is being televised on ESPNU. 

> Reggie Johnson in the starting lineup for the first time this season. Looks like Haith likes the way he's playing lately.
> Another slow start for Frank Haith's basketball team. Virginia jumps out to a quick 6-0 lead with 18:14 left
> Canes started the game 0-for-8 before Adrian Thomas drilled a three-pointer with 14:03 left to make it 12-4 Virginia; Frank Haith has already played 11 players in this game.
> Canes go into the half trailing 33-21. They shot 5 of 23 from the field in the first half and were 1 of 9 from 3pt range. UM shot 7 of 26 at Virginia Tech Wednesday night. So, this is even worse.
