The U.Va. men’s basketball team is in Europe for a series of exhibition games — and to soak in some of the culture. Jeff White of the newly redesigned virginiasports.com is part of the traveling party (lucky dog), and is sending back dispatches from the road. There’s also a behind-the-scenes blog.
The Cavs won their first game Wednesday, 89-62 over the Netherlands B team, in a mostly empty suburban arena outside Amsterdam. VirginiaSportsTV was there, giving Cavalier basketball junkies their first look at the 2012-13 team.
Later stops are scheduled to include Antwerp and Paris.
