Result: Push
Taking VIRGINIA here. I am the first one to tell you. You have read it in my write ups. I had Michigan State Final Four bound. But the more I see of this Virginia team, I don't think it is that easy. You can easily overlook the Cavs. They are far from your typical ACC Power. Yet, these guys won the regular season and tournament championships. You can say the ACC is down. They have taken care of everyone on their plate though. This is just the 2nd time ever a 1 seed is a dog in this round. I like Izzo. But he hasn't fared well facing the ACC (11-22 SU) and 3-7 SU vs 1 seeds. This is as good a defense as the Spartans have faced. Let's not forget these guys blew a 16pt lead vs Harvard and clawed out a win. They won't be doing that against this team I can guarantee that. 8* Sure - Shot VIRGINIA
