Virginia men's basketball team with a bench production heading in the NCAA Competition | Cavalier Insider

Jay Huff was here before, flying through the air, trying to release a 7-foot frame 1 at the edge of the opponent with a one-wing dunk. Only this time a guest was unwelcome.

Florida State State, Mfiondu Kabengele, followed Virginia's breakthrough path, and when Huff reached his peak, Kabengele smashed the ball from the edge. As the Seminoles managed to reach the loose ball and break the court down, Huff fell to the hardwood, the frustration of 232 pounds, and he stained the floor with his right hand.

“I wanted to get a score. He made a good play, ”said Huff, stopping. "That's how."

There was less than five minutes left in the ACC Contest Friday Friday when Huff arrived in a vacuum, and the Cavaliers under 11 points, a huge extraordinary deficit for Coach Team Tony Bennett.

There were many reasons for a 69-59 Florida State victory, but perhaps there was nothing on the box by scoring more than the bench points.

Florida State 28, Virginia 8.

“They were equally fair to score,” Bennett said.

Virginia had a double score: DeAndre Hunter (13 points), Kyle Guy (11 points) and Jerome House (10 points). However, none of the three engineers engineered the type of movement required by Cavaliers; Jerome did not score in the first half.

During the regular season, Bennett often supported the flexibility and depth of his team. Scored from miscellaneous sources. January 5 was there, when Braxton Key, the team's main rebounder, scored 20 points against Florida State. Huff pour in 12 points in 17 minutes on February 23 at Louisville. Forward Mamadi Diakite dropped out of 18 points at Boston College on January 9.

No one stood in a vacuum on Friday. Key score four points. Diakite scoring three. Huff head scoring.

“The scoring is fair, which we have always been against. And no, I don't think we were so productive or effective, of course, abusive, ”Bennett said.

The coach said he was more disappointed with the protection of his staff. After holding the seminars to 34.1 percent in the 65-52 win on January 5, Virginia State Florida approved to 56.5 percent to shoot Friday.

However, the lack of production from the bench could be an alarming trend for the Cavaliers with the start of NCAA Tournament just a day away. The Virgina bench only won nine points in Thursday and won over the CC. State in the quarter.

Guy raised the Wahoos over the Wolfpack with 29 points, but his shots were not falling on the same ring on Friday, and Jerome was struggling for the second consecutive game. The Cavaliers met with a late hunter, and dubbed the brilliant sophomore from the high post.

But the Seminoles, who had nine players at least 11 minutes, took over too strong dominance, as Huff learned exactly when he raised for that late dunk.
