Matches of the Week

Men
#5 Virginia vs. #4 Yale
A huge Top-5 match-up headlines the men’s competition this weekend and should give fans a glimpse of two teams looking to break through this season. The result may come down to the contrast between Virginia’s strength at the top of their lineup and Yale’s seasoned depth.

Women
#8 Virginia vs. #4 Columbia 
The Virginia women will look to replicate their hot start from last season, which included an upset of Columbia in New York City. This season, the Cavaliers are again ranked lower but hope to use home court advantage and another year of experience to support their upset bids.
