Virginia recorded 16 steals--one pick for every five NC State possessions--and finished the night +16 in the turnover department. That sort of advantage in effective possessions is rather difficult to overcome.

Even after Sunday, the Virginia defense ranks just 264th in steal percentage. I'm sorry we weren't able to be of more help.

"Shit, Nancy, hold onto the damn ball."

"Whew--y'all stink."
