Virginia's win over Tech Monday night at the Richmond Coliseum gave the Cavs 13 wins on the season. That's just one less than the Cavaliers had all of last year.

[WIPE TO PINNACLE 7514] Tonight they will attempt to equal that total when they host Florida State at University Hall in a nine o'clock tip-off. The game is a complete sellout and the only place you can catch it is right here on Your Hometown Station.

The Cavs very much wanted Monday night's win, and they admitted afterwards that Tech is much better than its 9-and-9 record indicates.

((Reggie Miller is second in the NBA in three pointers made with 90. George Lynch has attempted just 12. NBA leading scorer Allen Iverson pumps in over 31 points a game, 23 more than Lynch. But his team doesn't win without George. ((IVERSON:))
His teammates aren't the only ones that take notice. In four years as owner, Pat Croce has turned the 76ers into one of the most giving organizations in the league, raising 150 thousand dollars a year for various charities. He feels Lynch is a prime example of what the City of Brotherly love is all about. ((PAT CROCE:))
The Sixers have started the Willineum with a 7 and 2 record. Will Smith isn't the only blockbuster act to recognize

Lynch's contributions to Philly.)) [S-Express]
