NCAAB: Cavaliers vs Panthers

Virginia Cavaliers vs Pittsburgh Panthers

Virginia Cavaliers will be traveling to the Petersen Events Center to take on the Pittsburgh Panthers on February 24th, 2018. Will the underdogs manage to upset the favorites Virginia Cavaliers or is it going to be a predictable outcome? Let’s take a look at both college basketball teams.

Virginia Cavaliers

Should the Virginia Cavaliers continue playing dominating basketball, like they did the entire season, Pittsburgh Panthers would be in a lot of trouble. The Cavaliers are known for their tight-knit defense, which barely allows the opposition to convert their shots. The defense takes the pressure off the offense, giving them vital time to play their game.

Key players

Virginia Cavaliers top scorer, Kyle Guy, with an average of 15.2 points per game, will be leading the offense against the Panthers. With the likes of Devon Hall lurking around, the Panthers are going to have a difficult time in stopping them from scoring.

Pittsburgh Panthers

Pittsburgh Panthers will be coming into this game hoping to snatch an important victory against the Cavaliers. However, it will be an uphill task for the Panthers to mount any solid offense against the Cavaliers, given their recent losing streak of four games. Given that the Virginia Cavaliers have one of the best defenses in college basketball, the Panthers will have to go hard or go home.

Key players

Jared Wilson-Frame and Ryan Luther will need to step up their game significantly if they wish to sink the shots past their formidable opponents. Marcus Carr is another player who can score some points for the Panthers.

Predictions

The game will be going in favor of the Virginia Cavaliers, given their current form and incredible defense!
