A healthy Kirby, and I would feel more intrigued about UVA's chances. As it stands, they are in the ACC tournament, and Connor Jones seems to have taken that next step. If they can sneak into the NCAA tournament, they'll be an interesting team. Not as strong a
"darkhorse" challenger without Kirby, but with a legit ace and a fairly interesting lineup, could cause some trouble. Assuming Pinero comes back, and assuming a young arm or two steps up (namely, the injured Derek Casey), they should be back to their usual quality ACC team next year.
