Streaking Virginia headed for ACC road tests


A sweep of its three-game homestand has Virginia off to its best start in the Atlantic Coast Conference since Ralph Sampson was a senior 31 years ago.

The next test for the Cavaliers comes this week when they travel to Notre Dame and No. 18 Pittsburgh.

Virginia (15-5, 6-1) plays at South Bend, Ind., on Tuesday and at Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Tony Bennett, in his fifth season at Virginia, says this team has mastered his offensive and defensive systems better than any Cavaliers squad he has coached. But he cautions his players to stay hungry, reminding them of when they were ranked earlier in the season and started believing in their press clippings.

Says Bennett, "My challenge to them is, `Don't give it back."'
