No. 8 seed

16-14 regular season, 7-9 ACC

vs. No. 9 Miami, noon today, WRAL, WRDU-106.1

Starting lineup

G Sammy Zeglinski 7.6 ppg, 3.1 rpg

G Mustapha Farrakhan 13.5 ppg, 2.8 rpg

F Joe Harris 10.6 ppg, 4.3 rpg

F Will Sherrill 4.4 ppg, 3.0 rpg

Coming in hot: Sammy Zeglinski had 25 points and six 3-pointers in Saturday's win at Maryland. The 6-foot-1 guard erupted for 21 in last year's opening-round game against Boston College in Greensboro.

Number to know: 61.9, UVa's scoring average. The lowest in the ACC, it's among the worst in the country.

Contender or pretender: As admirable of a coaching job as Tony Bennett has done this season, this team just doesn't have the gas to win four games in four days. The Cavaliers can beat Miami, but they match up poorly with UNC's wealth of talent.
