UNC 83, Virginia 61

I'm not sure if anything's changed. Teams still overcollapse on Hansbrough because the perimeter shooting is poor (Lawson was 3-3 but the rest of the team 2-11 from behind the arc.), and the turnover and rebounding margins aren't what they once were. But UVa really isn't very good, so the Heels won easily. The Miami game on Saturday will be a much bigger test, after the Hurricanes stunning comeback against a surprisingly ineffectual Maryland. Win that one and I'll be more convinced that Carolina's over whatever plagued them this past week. Until then, this was a confidence booster but nothing more.
