UVa content with No. 2 ranking for now

Unless he was watching Sunday's game between Marquette and Villanova, Virginia men’s basketball coach Tony Bennett probably didn’t realize how close the Cavaliers came to being ranked No.

Marquette guard Andrew Rowsey, a Rockbridge County graduate, got the Golden Eagles as close as three points with more than a minute remaining before top-ranked Villanova held on for an 85-82 road win.

One day earlier, visiting Virginia had defeated favored Duke 65-63 in an outcome that no doubt contributed to UVa receiving 17 first-place votes in the Associated Press poll released Monday morning,

An area of concern for UVa following its Duke trip was an injury that sidelined redshirt freshman De’Andre Hunter for the final 4 minutes, 46 seconds.

An agitated Bennett was on top of his game, not backing down when he disagreed with the officiating crew of Tim Nestor, Jeff Clark and Brian O’Connell.
