When No. 12 Virginia hosts No. 4 Syracuse on Saturday, guard Malcolm Brogdon says the difference will be approaching the Cavaliers' biggest game in decades like just another contest.
Of course it isn't just another game. A victory will make Virginia the outright Atlantic Coast Conference champions for the first time in 33 years.
Virginia (24-5, 15-1 ACC) has won 12 straight overall, and a school-record 17 in a row at home against conference opponents, but hasn't faced a team the caliber of the Orange since No. 3 Duke visited on Feb. 28 last year.
The Blue Devils are the only ranked team the Cavaliers have beaten during their home winning streak.
Syracuse is 26-2, but has lost two of three since starting the season with 25 straight wins.
