He's a Dude: Justin Anderson, junior guard. Anderson has really come on strong this year for the Cavaliers, averaging 14.9 points and 4.6 rebounds a game this season. Last year, Anderson played in 37 games but started in just five, earning 2013-14 ACC Sixth Man of the Year by the ACSMA. From Montross, Virginia, Anderson was named the Gatorade Maryland Boys Basketball Player of the Year as a senior at Montrose Christian in Rockville, Maryland.

Fun Fact: Virginia coach Tony Bennett is still searching for his first ever coaching win in Chestnut Hill (0-3 all-time). BC is 4-1 at home against UVa and 7-2 at Conte Forum this year.
