Virginia’s offense fades late against Ohio in NCAA tournament upset

For awhile, it didn’t seem like Virginia would have a chance to compete in the 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. A positive coronavirus test within the program force the Cavaliers to withdraw from the ACC tournament, and Virginia didn’t arrive in Indianapolis until Friday afternoon.

On Saturday night, Virginia showed that rust from the lay-off as they shot just 35% from the field and 26% from three in a 62-58 loss to 13-seed Ohio. Sam Hauser led Virginia with 15 points, but stretch of 10+ minutes without a field goal saw a seven-point lead turn into a seven-point deficit.
