Virginia vs. Auburn Instant Betting Reaction
Can Auburn’s Offense Stay This Hot?
Virginia’s pack-line defense (No. 5 in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency) is geared towards limiting dribble penetration into the lane, but it’s been susceptible from behind the arc, yielding the 104th-highest 3-point scoring rate. Purdue exposed that in the Elite Eight, shooting almost 44% from distance.
