MEN'S NEWS ...Coming off what its coach called the "most complete 90 minutes of the year," No. 12 Virginia heads to No. 8 Maryland Saturday for a key ACC match. The Cavaliers' 2-0 victory over visiting Boston College last weekend was their third in a row and improved their record to 10-3-1. Virginia has come a long way since a horrible pre-season when it lost all three games. "We defended well and converted on our scoring chances," said Virginia coach George Gelnovatch after the BC game.

Freshman Will Bates has scored goals in each of the last four games, joining Chris Agorsor and Tony Tchanion one of the nation's most dangerous frontlines. U.S. U-20 national team winger Brian Ownby, Bates' former Richmond Strikers teammate, came off the bench and scored against BC. Former U.S. U-17 keeperDiego Restrepo, who spent two seasons at South Florida before transferring to Virginia, has been outstanding in goal for the Cavs with six shutouts.
