CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Jeff Jones feels his team has done enough. Gary Williams has no doubts, either.
But whether Sunday's victory by Jones' Virginia Cavaliers over Williams' Maryland Terrapins is enough to get Virginia into the NCAA tournament can't be answered until the 64-team field is announced next weekend.
``I really believe Virginia deserves to go to the NCAA,'' said Williams, whose 16th-ranked Maryland fell 81-74 in the regular-season finale for both teams. ``I would think six teams are a fair thing for us. It's not ridiculous to say there should be six teams from the ACC.''
Although Virginia (18-11, 7-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) could make the point mute with a good run in this week's ACC tournament, Jones treated Sunday's game as an all-or-nothing proposition, and was emotionally drained afterward.
