I bought this sucker this week:
Not the best college hoops rag out there, but first on the newstand = the one I buy first. And lo and behold, Lindy's wants to heap some preseason praise upon our Hoos. Check it:
-- Joe Harris is rated the #1 shooting guard in the nation for 2013-14. #1.
-- Akil Mitchell is Lindy's 10th-best power forward.
-- Mike Tobey is the #7 center.
-- UVA has the nation's 4th-best frontcourt (and they didn't even name Anthony Gill as part of the equation in the write-up!)
-- Virginia is ranked #14 to start the season. "This team is deeper, bigger, and more experienced than any other team Bennett has coached. Virginia could make a run deep into March."
This, my friends, is what expectations look like. And now it's up to Bennett and the team to meet (exceed?) those expectations.
Sweet Sixteen or bust.
