VIRGINIA: Last season: 23-11, lost to Florida in second round of NCAA Tournament
Who's gone: G London Perrantes, G Marial Shayok (transferred), G Darius Thompson (transferred)
Who's back: G Devon Hall. He's a tri-captain the leading returning scorer (8.4 ppg). G Kyle Guy. He made a splash and became a fan favorite with his outside shooting stroke and man bun. The bun is gone, but the stroke is still there. F Isaiah Wilkins. Another tri-captain, he anchors Bennett's Pack-Line defense.
Who's new: F Jay Huff. He's a stretch four who draws comparisons to the like of Dirk Nowitzki, but will be asked to stay closer to the basket much of the time to help with rebounding. G Nigel Johnson. A speedy point guard who brings speed and a love of playing defense. G De'Andre Hunter. A 6-foot-7 guard who, like Huff, redshirted last year and who is a big-time scorer but may be asked to play some forward too because Virginia needs the size
The Skinny: Virginia is younger and without a go-to guy like Joe Harris, Malcolm Brogdon or Perrantes, but Guy and PG Ty Jerome both demonstrated outside shooting skills last season, Huff's improvement has been hyped throughout the offseason and the ever-present defensive focus always steals a few victories.
WAKE FOREST: Last season: 19-14, lost to Kansas State in NCAA Tournament opening round
Who's gone: F John Collins, F Dinos Mitoglou
Who's back: G Bryant Crawford averaged 16.2 points, 5.5 assists last season; G Keyshawn Woods averaged 12.5 points and 4.2 rebounds; G Mitchell Wilbekin averaged 7 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists.
Who's new: G-F Chaundee Brown is the program's highest-rated recruit since Al-Farouq Aminu in 2008; C Olivier Sarr is a 7-foot native of France who could help mitigate the loss of Collins inside.
The Skinny: Manning's fourth season with the Demon Deacons will be a pivotal one. They made their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2010 behind a player (Collins) who's since moved on to the NBA. The key issue is whether the handful of guards in the rotation can carry this team farther than Collins did.
Surging No. 2 Virginia visits Wake Forest

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- No. 2 Virginia goes surging into Sunday night's game at Wake Forest without a string of convincing victories.

That's how it happens when things are going good.

"Our word in the locker room is 'trust,' " Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. "Trust each other. Trust your teammates and trust how we're doing it the right way."

So far, there can be few complaints for the Cavaliers (17-1, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who hold a nine-game winning streak and sit alone in first place in the ACC.

A victory in this game would give the Cavaliers their second 7-0 conference start in four seasons.

Wake Forest (8-10, 1-5) is trying to escape a four-game losing streak.

Virginia is 3-1 in true road games after winning 64-48 on Thursday night at Georgia Tech. It marked the eighth time this season a Virginia opponent has failed to reach the 50-point mark.

But this marks the midway juncture of a stretch of three road games in a four-game span.

"We acknowledged the fact that it's going to get harder as the season progresses," Bennett said. "The competition, the road games, the home games -- it's just how it is. The season is going to get tougher as we go on the road more."

The Cavaliers put some emphasis on reducing turnovers and a steadier approach in offensive rebounding.

Wake Forest has rarely had trouble scoring this season, except for at the end of games. The Demon Deacons were victims of North Carolina State's game-closing 11-0 run in Thursday night's 72-63 road loss.

"I thought we had opportunities to score," Wake Forest coach Danny Manning said. "We just didn't make shots. We got the ball to the rim a couple of times and didn't finish when we needed to."

That has been a troubling trend because the Demon Deacons tumbled with horrid final stretches against Tennessee and North Carolina in losses in late December.

Now Wake Forest begins a stretch of six consecutive games against teams that are ranked or have been nationally ranked this season.

The Demon Deacons have made at least nine 3-point baskets in each of their ACC games this season. Still, Wake Forest tends to operate best when it's able to push the ball inside, particularly to 7-foot-1 junior center Doral Moore.

Virginia's 3-point defense ranks as the best in the ACC, allowing only 29.9 percent of the long-range shots to be successful.

The emergence of Virginia's De'Andre Hunter, a redshirt freshman guard who has been coming off the bench, has helped the Cavaliers adjust to various matchups. Plus, he has been able to contribute offensively.

"The balanced scoring was good," Bennett said of the Georgia Tech game when four Cavaliers reached double figures. "He's given us some inside-outside."

Having that versatility could come in handy against Wake Forest, which went to a twin-towers approach with Moore and 7-foot reserve Olivier Sarr at times in its most recent game. Regardless, the Demon Deacons tend to mix it up, with three reserves logging at least 20 minutes in their last game.

"If you're helping the team be successful in that game, that's who should play," Manning said. "It helps keep your practices lively because guys know if they get in and help the team be successful, they'll get a chance to play extended minutes."
