Virginia has finally set their season in the right direction with a huge win over Duke on Saturday. The Cavaliers have now improved their overall profile, and as a result they are now moved to the second overall seed in the nation. We still do have some concerns about the strength of schedule as we head for the back stretch of the season.
Things we like about UVA include the fact that they have some good road wins including Duke and Virginia Tech. Plus a win against North Carolina at home. Virginia is 10-1 vs the top 2 tiers and has no bad losses. Being ranked number one in RPI is a huge plus.
There are a few problems that have risen for their schedule though. UVA has a very weak home schedule the rest of the season with only one Tier 1 team at home. Road games of interest include @ FSU, @Miami, and @Louisville. With only a handful of good wins available, Virginia leaves an opening for other teams to gain position. It will be instrumental for UVA to win most of their games if they really want that one seed.
