Sabre poster Hoos in da house asked an interesting question on multiple boards last week. The Afternoon Break turned it into a poll. Here are the results from last Friday’s break poll!
Men’s tennis garnered the most votes as the UVa spring sports team with the best chance to win the NCAA Championship this spring; 47% of voters picked Brian Boland’s Hoos. The rowing team (29%) and the men’s lacrosse team (22%) also received more than 20% of the votes. Click on “view results” below to see the full range of votes.

- The women’s basketball board has a thread starting on Jeff White’s article at VirginiaSports.com on new assistant coach Ashley Early.
- The baseball board is talking about the upcoming series with Georgia Tech. Don’t forget you can follow the play-by-play of the game on that board all weekend long. Here’s a scouting report on GT too.
- On the lacrosse board, there’s a good discussion about a shot clock in college lacrosse here. The conversation started with this article from the New York Times. There’s also this thread on lineup strategies for the NCAA Tournament.
- Music, food and travel are often hot topics on The Corner board. There are threads today on Italian restaurants in NYC, the Avett Brothers, The Connells (plus others), and Washington DC travel advice.
