CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Virginia men’s basketball team is scheduled to be back in action on Wednesday night, as the 22nd ranked Cavaliers host Wake Forest at nine o’clock at John Paul Jones Arena.

UVA has already missed three games due to COVID, which includes this past weekend against Virginia Tech, but does not include the Dec. 16 meeting with the Demon Deacons, which was postponed due to COVID-19 issues in the Wake Forest program.

Virginia will be shorthanded in their ACC home opener on Wednesday, but head coach Tony Bennett his team is prepared to roll with the punches.

“Frustration? Sure, that’s human nature,” says Bennett. “There are so many things always in perspective, that are way more severe. This is just, “Alright, here’s where we’re at,’ and we go with it.”

UVA (5-2, 1-0 ACC) and Wake Forest tip-off at nine o’clock on Wednesday at John Paul Jones Arena.
