CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -Virginia quarterback Peter Lalich won't accompany the Cavaliers to Connecticut for Saturday's game, coach Al Groh said Wednesday night, so that he can concentrate on legal problems and not be a distraction to the team.
Lalich, who has started the first two games, is due in Charlottesville General District Court on Sept. 26 for a hearing. The 20-year-old was arrested on an underage drinking charge July 13 and was given a deferred judgment provided he completes supervised probation.
The sophomore said in a release distributed by the school that he does not want his troubles to be a distraction to the Cavaliers (1-1).

``I make mistakes like everyone, but I have followed the terms of my probation and I am committed to our team and the University of Virginia.''
