After a 10-day hiatus to complete exams before winter break, No. 5 Virginia returns to action Wednesday night to meet South Carolina for the 50th time in both school's history while rekindling an old ACC rivalry.
The Cavaliers, who jumped up one spot in the Associated Press Poll despite not playing a game last week, are looking to continue their undefeated run and are off to their best start (9-0) since going 19-0 in 2014-15.
"I know going in against a team like South Carolina that they'll be very physical and very aggressive," Virginia coach Tony Bennett said of South Carolina. "They really have good pressure defense and just two years removed from a Final Four."
