VIRGINIA: Last season: 23-11, lost to Florida in second round of NCAA Tournament
Who's gone: G London Perrantes, G Marial Shayok (transferred), G Darius Thompson (transferred)
Who's back: G Devon Hall. He's a tri-captain the leading returning scorer (8.4 ppg). G Kyle Guy. He made a splash and became a fan favorite with his outside shooting stroke and man bun. The bun is gone, but the stroke is still there. F Isaiah Wilkins. Another tri-captain, he anchors Bennett's Pack-Line defense.
Who's new: F Jay Huff. He's a stretch four who draws comparisons to the like of Dirk Nowitzki, but will be asked to stay closer to the basket much of the time to help with rebounding. G Nigel Johnson. A speedy point guard who brings speed and a love of playing defense. G De'Andre Hunter. A 6-foot-7 guard who, like Huff, redshirted last year and who is a big-time scorer but may be asked to play some forward too because Virginia needs the size
The Skinny: Virginia is younger and without a go-to guy like Joe Harris, Malcolm Brogdon or Perrantes, but Guy and PG Ty Jerome both demonstrated outside shooting skills last season, Huff's improvement has been hyped throughout the offseason and the ever-present defensive focus always steals a few victories.
PITTSBURGH: Last season: 16-17, first losing season since 1999-2000
Who's gone: F Michael Young, G/F Jamel Artis, G Cam Johnson, F Sheldon Jeter, G Chris Jones, C Rozelle Nix, G Jonathan Milligan, G Justice Kithcart, G Damon Wilson, F Corey Manigault.
Who's back: F Ryan Luther averaged 5.7 points and 3.9 rebounds last season; G Jonathan Milligan.
Who's new: Everybody else. G/F Jared Wilson-Frame averaged 14.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists for Northwest Florida State last season. G Marcus Carr averaged 9.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists for Montverde Academy (Florida) as a senior. F/C Terrell Brown averaged 16.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.8 blocks at Tilton School (N.H.). G/F Shamiel Stevenson, Canadian native averaged 14.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 blocks for Hillcrest Prep (Arizona).
The Skinny: Stallings basically blew up the program following a bumpy first season that saw the Panthers miss out on postseason play for the first time since 2000. Pitt's ability to compete this season is going to depend heavily on the reconstructed roster coming together quickly. Expectations are low. Pitt was picked to finish last in the conference, meaning any upward movement would be considered a success for a team that was an NCAA Tournament staple under Ben Howland and Jamie Dixon.
No. 1 Virginia has extra incentive to beat Pitt

After wrapping up the No. 1 seed in next month's ACC Tournament in Brooklyn, N.Y., Virginia would clinch the outright regular-season championship for the third time in five years with one more win.

The No. 1 Cavaliers (25-2, 14-1) hit the road Saturday for the first of two road games in a three-game stretch to close out the regular season when they take on Pittsburgh (8-21, 0-16).

The Panthers haven't won a game since before Christmas and are in jeopardy of becoming the second team in three seasons to go winless in the ACC (Boston College, 2015-16)

"It's definitely a step in the right direction for what we want to do this year," sophomore guard Ty Jerome said about Virginia clinching the No. 1 seed. "We just can't get complacent because we have so much more to go -- hopefully at least 10, 11, 12 more games."

Jerome led Virginia with 18 points in its 65-54 win over Georgia Tech on Wednesday night. The Cavaliers continue to boast a balanced attack as scoring leader Kyle Guy (14.9 ppg) hasn't led Virginia in any of the last five games.

If there is a light at the end of the tunnel for Pittsburgh, it did knock off then-No. 11 Virginia in overtime last season in the Steel City, but this year's squad looks much different.

The Panthers have lost their 16 conference games by an average of almost 20 points but did show signs of competitiveness Wednesday night in a 63-57 home loss to Wake Forest.

"I'm here to help these guys be successful and I'm not doing a good enough job of that right now," Pittsburgh head coach Kevin Stallings said. "We need to get better. But I'm just not the right person to ask because at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what I think."

Pittsburgh is 1-1 all time against No. 1 teams at Petersen Events Center. The last occurrence came in 2014 when the Panthers lost to Syracuse.

"The rankings, the seeding, what (media members) say, social media, that's insignificant," Virginia head coach Tony Bennett said. "I tell them: Don't overcomplicate this. Be about improvement, playing to win, and then preparing the right way, and then we'll see how far we can take this."

The Cavaliers are 13-4 all time against the Panthers and won the team's final two matchups last season.

Virginia has now won at least 25 games for the eighth time in school history with four of those seasons coming in the last five years under Bennett.

A win on Saturday would not only give the Cavaliers another ACC regular-season title, it will also give them another steppingstone to what they ultimately want -- a national title.

"Concentrate on the process, and then good things happen after that. Those are the fruits of your labor," Bennett said.
