CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — The UVa men’s basketball team should have its leading scorer back Wednesday night against ACC rival Boston College.
Sylven Landesberg, who suffered a deep bruise in his right thigh last Tuesday in Coral Gables, Fla., didn’t play five nights later against fifth-ranked Duke at John Paul Jones Arena.
The sophomore swingman from Queens, N.Y., was not able to practice before that game, and he was held out of the Cavaliers’ 67-49 loss.
Landesberg practiced Monday night at JPJ, however, and again Tuesday night at Conte Forum. After the session in BC’s arena, Landesberg said he expects to play Wednesday night.
Boston College (5-9, 14-14) hosts UVa (5-9, 14-13) at 9 o’clock. ESPNU will televise the game.
