It's senior night on the Heights as we honor the career of Tyler Roche. The Eagles need a win to secure a spot in the #8 vs. #9 game the ACC Tournament. The game is a 9 PM tip over BC's Spring Break, so attendance will probably be very light. I know this season has been very frustrating (to say the least), but If you get the opportunity to attend tonight's game, please do.

Similarly, Virginia can earn the #8 seed with a win tonight on the road. For Virginia, their leading scorer and playmaker Sylven Landesberg will be a game-time decision. Landesberg was sidelined for Virginia's home game against Duke on Sunday with a bruised thigh.
