The two teams will face off at the end of the training camp which ends January 28.


Former UVA All-American Denny McCarthy moved up five spots during Sunday’s final round of The American Express in LaQuinta, Calif. for a tie for a sixth-place finish. It marked the fourth time in his last five PGATour stops he has posted a top-15 finish. This impressive second shot led to an eagle on No. 16 yesterday. Click here to see it for yourself.


@UVAMensSoccer alum and #ShoutRoar blog favorite Daryl Dike made his first start this weekend for West Brom, but it did not end well. He will miss at least the next two matches with a hamstring injury.
