Cavs Using Two Week Break to Regroup

The Virginia men's basketball team is in the midst of a two week break from games, and their two most recent losses are a source of motivation during the break.

The 'Hoos struggled offensively at home against Wisconsin, and then went on the road to Wisconsin-Green Bay where they gave up 75 points defensively.

"It's pretty tough, because you're going into the break kind of down and we know that there's a lot of things to work on," said senior forward Akil Mitchell. "It's tough, but it's also good because it lets us regroup. It lets us work on things that we needed to work on, so there's plusses and minuses to it."

"I think it was a wake up call for us to lose those two games back-to-back," adds sophomore guard Malcolm Brogdon. "I mean I think this gives us time to recuperate, get back together, get everybody to establish their roles again and get everybody to get on the same page."

The break in games gives the Cavaliers a chance to study for their final exams, but it also gives them a chance to work through their issues on the court.

"We've got to get more flow offensively," Mitchell said Tuesday. "We got caught, especially a few times in the Wisconsin game and then a few times in the Green Bay game, sputtering offensively. There's a few things we need to work on offensively, transition defense. It's just focusing in on the little details."
