Despite a poor offensive performance, ***ia managed to escape last night
with an important non-conference win against ***ia Tech, 61-57 in
double overtime. Bryant Stith scored 24 points, 9 of which came in the
second overtime period. That nine included 2 three's and 3 of 4 free throws.
Jeff Jones said after the game "That's kind of what we've come to expect
from Bryant...That's the mark of a great player." ***ia shot only 33.3
percent and Tech shot 40.6 percent. Neither team really got anything going
and if it wasn't for 2 overtimes, ***ia would have tied it's worst
offensive performance of the year. Forward John Rivers led the Turkeys with
15. Jeffries scored a season high 12 for ***ia. ***ia led 18-15 at
he half - Tech shot 29.2 percent, missed all 7 3-point attempts and 5 of
6 free throws. UVa wasn't much better - shooting 33 percent.
Sith came through in the clutch for UVa to keep our tournament hopes alive.
He played all 50 minutes of the game. Corey Alexander was a total non-factor
in the game - looks like his up and down performances continue. This was
***ia's 15th win against ***ia Tech in 18 meetings. The Cavaliers have
some time off before taking on FLorida State on Thursday, February 13 at
