SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) When Virginia coach Tony Bennett glanced up at the Carrier Dome scoreboard as the first half was dwindling, he winced. His second-ranked Cavaliers had made just one field goal in the first 13 minutes and trailed Syracuse by 11 points.
"I just looked at the guys and I said, `All we've got is each other. We're going to have to try to figure this out,'" Bennett said. "I've been in those spots before. We couldn't change anything. We're just either going to sink or swim with these guys."
The Cavaliers decided to swim some more.
