Furthermore, the pace of Virginia's play is dictated by that defense...


The guards will continue to crash the defensive boards (as opposed to releasing), and the team will continue to maintain floor balance before taking a shot (to prevent/limit transition scoring opportunities for opponents). And, IMO, there is nothing wrong with that. It has been Bennett's formula for success. And, he has continued to tweak the offense based on personnel. I suspect that will continue to be the case, but it is the defense which dictates 'pace', and that isn't going to change. Or, at least, I hope not, because it is Virginia's defense which is responsible for all the recent success. Go 'Hoos!!!
