An ACC battle for first happens today at 4 p.m. when # 4/5 Syracuse take on #12/11 Virginia in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers are alone in first place with a 15-1 conference record, while the Orange is in second place with a 13-2 record.

The game will be televised on ESPN and ESPN3 or you can listen to the action on the TK99 (99.5 FM).

This is SU’s third straight road game and the Cuse sports a strong 7-1 road record this year. Su will need the sharpshooter, Trevor Cooney, to get going and open up the floor for the rest of the team. Syracuse got a needed boost with the return of Baye Moussa Keita who has been a force on the boards while fans will be watching to see how forward Jerami Grant is recovering from back issues.

Virginia sports a 12 win unbeaten streak, the nation’s top-ranked defense, and a deep, unselfish team. Their last loss was at Duke back on Jan. 13th.
