The Cavalier Men's Basketball Team looks to continue the success from its season opener, as Virginia welcomes the Howard Bison to John Paul Jones Arena tomorrow night. Tip off for the game has been set for 7:00.

Virginia enters with a 1-0 record, after topping Vermont, 90-72, on Sunday. Sean Singletary and Adrian Joseph paced the Cavaliers win 19 points each, and Calvin Baker made an impressive Virginia debut with eleven points off the bench.

The Bison, however, seem to be on a different path. They ran across some problems in their season opener, falling at Duquesne, 129-59. Randy Hampton and Jeron Smith led Howard with eleven points each in the losing cause.

The Bison hail from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and last season, Virginia was 3-0 against teams from that conference. The Cavaliers topped Maryland- Eastern Shore, Hampton, and Morgan State, all at John Paul Jones Arena.

This marks Virginia's final home contest of the week. The Cavaliers will travel to Tuscon on Saturday to face Arizona.
