Virginia Overcomes Natural Lethargy in NIT Victory over Norfolk State
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Confession: After the first half of Virginia’s first-round NIT game against Norfolk State declined into an eyesore, I paid scant attention. The Cavaliers are better than the Spartans, and I presumed talent and pedigree would prevail. So courtesy of the clicker, off to more aesthetic contests I went. Kentucky-Robert Morris; St. John’s-Saint Joseph’s. Even, for a spell, Middle Tennessee State-Saint Mary’s. But unsightly as its 67-56 victory may have been, props to Virginia.
