Charlottesville - After back-to-back losses at Wake and Clemson, Virginia tries to get back on track Saturday at 4 at home against Florida State.
They'll play without forward Darion Atkins who's been shut down indefinitely with a stress reaction in his lower right leg.
The Cavs are 11-and-5 overall, 1-and-2 in the ACC.
Joe Harris, CAVS LEADING SCORER (15.1 PTS./GAME), said "You know it's tough when you get a couple of losses like that, it affects your confidence a little bit. You know I just keep telling the younger guys you know we're back at home, it's a big game for us against Florida State, obviously another very tough team. But you know we get this win, I think you get some confidence underneath our belt and kind of move on from there."
Tony Bennett, VIRGINIA HEAD COACH, said "These guys are gonna be OK, I know that. It's just grinding through these tough games. Every game you play, home or on the road, is gonna be a war."
Virginia Tech plays host to Wake Forest Saturday at 2.
