One thing to look for in the challenge is road wins and/or upsets. It is a good way to briefly keep an eye on how a conference is doing.
When a road team with three losses beats a top 20 team that was previously undefeated, including a win over UNC, you really take notice.
The Virgina Cavaliers went up to Minnesota and beat the 17th-ranked Gophers 87-79. The Cavs absolutely lit it up from beyond the arc, hitting on 10-of-13 3-pointers. They were led by guard Joe Harris, who had 24 points and five rebounds. Mustapha Farrakhan had 23 points coming off the bench.
Minnesota had a 39-29 lead at halftime, and led for over 24 straight minutes. Virgina came on strong to finish the second half, scoring 58 points to Minnesota's 40 to get the victory.
