Diakite left the last game with a head injury but it is unlikely to impede his status for Monday's clash against UNC.
The # 8 Tar Heels have a tough one on their hands tonight and come in looking for a win over # 3 Virginia. This one will be close but look for the fantastic Virginia defense to come through in a big way. Virginia is coming off a loss to Duke and they want this one.

Virginia was unsure on the status of Ty Jerome in the last game against
Duke. Jerome played with a stiff back, but will he be ready to go at
full strength just 48 hours later on the road? On top of that Mamadi
Diakite looked like he suffered a concussion in the last game.

Saturday night the Duke Blue Devils took care of the UVA Cavaliers in
their backyard and tonight I see the Tar Heels taking care of business.
Virginia has beaten the Tar Heels in 3-Straight meetings but tonight I
see revenge in the cards.
