In its quest for a third ACC men's basketball championship, Virginia did not have history on its side Saturday.

Harris, who played at the school for four seasons before going pro in 2014, hosted a small gathering of former teammates and ex-UVA players at his apartment before heading to watch the game. "Your team's kind of tested a little bit, got your backs against the wall, we're scuffling a little bit, and down 0-2 on the road to a great team, I just thought that was a great response by our club". "Marshall won. They took it out of anybody's hands", WKU coach Rick Stansbury said. You have to win.
