OUR PREDICTION: Virginia won four of out its last five games, with all four wins coming by 10-plus points. In the Cavaliers' last three first-round tournament matchups, they won by 11-12-36 points. The Seahawks are an experienced team and the 12-5 matchup has had great success for bettors, but the Cavaliers defense should grind the tempo of this game to a halt and force an otherwise mistake-free UNC-Wilmington team to get frustrated down the stretch.
