History says Hampton won’t beat Virginia when the two teams matchup. As everyone knows, no. 16 seed has ever beat a no. 1.
Hampton ain’t trying to hear that.
The Pirates are confident heading into their matchup with the Cavaliers in Raleigh on Thursday.
“Honestly out of all the number one seeds, I feel like they’re the mot beatable number one seed,” Hampton guard Reginald Johnson said via WRIC. “They’re not overly athletic. You can play the game with them, so I feel good about it.”
