As for the seventh-ranked Cavaliers, they’ll be looking to quickly regain some of their moment back after a stunning 63-62 road loss to Duke on Saturday. The Cavaliers, who have won eight of the previous 10 meetings against the Wolfpack, will definitely be putting their trust on the pair of Malcolm Brogdon and Anthony Gill to lead their attack from the get go. Both have been the team’s most reliable scorers this season, averaging 17.7 and 14.2 points per contest.
NC State is 3-7 SU and 6-3-1 ATS in its last 10 road games. Virginia, on the other hand, has been unbeaten in its last 10 home games, going 5-5 ATS in that stretch.

Oklahoma State finally managed to end its three-game slide by outlasting Kansas State on Saturday, 58-55. Leading the charge for the Cowboys was the pair of Leyton Hammonds and Jeff Newberry who combined for 23 points and 16 rebounds. The two will now look to help their squad build on their momentum when they pay the sixth-ranked Jayhawks a visit at the Allen Fieldhouse tonight.
Speaking of the Jayhawks, they’re the clear favorites to win this one. Kansas is fresh off a thrilling 76-72 win over No. 3 Oklahoma, during which Devonte Graham stole the show from Buddy Hield by scoring a game-high and a career-high 27 points on 8-for-13 shooting.
