Three things to know

▪ Virginia has lost four straight in ACC play for the first time since Tony Bennett’s first season in 2009-10. The Cavaliers struggle on offense, scoring an ACC-low 65.4 points per league game. While still tops in the country in scoring defense, the Cavaliers have not been as effective in turning teams over on defense to lead to easy points.

▪ UVA has won the last four meetings with the Wolfpack and Bennett has a 9-2 record against the Wolfpack.

▪ Tuesday’s 71-69 win at Georgia Tech ended a seven-game losing streak for N.C. State and it was the first time this season the Wolfpack held an ACC opponent under 70 points.
