Virginia is not having the season that many expected ... yet it is still ranked as high as No. 11 in college hoops.

That said, this is a team that has knocked off West Virginia (ranked No. 14 at the time), Villanova (ranked No. 12 at the time) and Miami (ranked No. 8 at the time). This is a team that is more than capable of winning the ACC. This is a team that can knock off Louisville on the road.
