CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Three consecutive impressive victories, including a road win at Maryland, have Virginia third in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings and playing its way into the NCAA tournament discussion.
The Cavaliers' next two games, though, are where they have to show they really belong.
Virginia (18-6, 8-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) plays at North Carolina on Saturday, and travels to No. 3 Miami on Tuesday to face the league's best team. The Hurricanes (19-3, 10-0) are the only team from the six power conferences still unbeaten in conference play. The Hurricanes have beaten No. 2 Duke by 27 and UNC by 26.
But first up, it's the Tar Heels (16-7, 6-4), who first play at Duke on Wednesday night. Virginia won the first meeting 61-52 at home Jan. 6.
