After an upset loss to San Francisco, No. 4 Virginia looks to avoid a similar outcome against the similarly named Saint Francis (Pa.). The Cavaliers (1-1) host the Red Flash (1-1) in Virginia's home opener Tuesday afternoon in Charlottesville, Va. "Everything's a learning experience, whether it's a win or loss," Virginia coach Tony Bennett said after his team's stunning 61-60 setback against San Francisco on Friday in Uncasville, Conn. "We take it for what it is, we move on ... and accept the past for what it is and move on to the future."
