Bottom line: UVA is just plain awful. They're really unimpressive. We're just worse....right now.
Last 9 games Brown is 17-82, 21%. Serious slump
Brown, Eddie and Barksdale show a lot of bad body language and the effort isn't there.
All three were former four-star recruits. JJ needs to set them straight, lots of potential wasted by those three men if they don't step up.
JJ and Dennis have their work cut out for them. I remember a time when teams feared playing us in the Cassell. That's not the case anymore. Hope they can turn it around.
I have no doubt they will turn it around. This is more or less what we expected with so few experienced players. Give JJ a few years and teams will again fear coming to Cassell.

I don't know if we can call UVA awful this year. They play an elite level of defense and do a damn good job of controlling the tempo of games. Sure their offense leaves something to be desired, but you can win your fair share of games by being OK on offense and elite on defense.
Here's the stats that show what is happening with this team:
Brown through the first 8 games: 42/93 - 14.38 PPG -3.13 APG. Since: 17/82 - 4.8 PPG - 1.6 APG.
Raines Free Throws through first 7 games: 18/26 (70%). Last 11: 4/17 (shows how much less he is working inside).
Raines PPG in Wins: 8.7 PPG. In losses: 3.4 PPG
Eddie through first 7 games: 51% FG - 17.4 PPG
Eddie in last 11 games: 36% FG - 12.3 PPG
