Virginia bucks the rules

The tragic death of Virginia women's lacrosse player and Cockeysville native Yeardley Love and the subsequent arrest and murder charges against men's lacrosse player George Huguely continue to hound the men's team and the NCAA Tournament.

Awaiting media covering Sunday's quarterfinals at Stony Brook was a stack of papers outlining post-game interview policies. The final sentence contained the following: "Virginia's locker room is CLOSED at all times."

That's very unusual as many of the locker rooms after NCAA Tournament contests have generally been open to the media. Interpret Virginia's decision to keep media away as you please, but I'll be curious to see if this trend continues if the Cavaliers are fortunate enough to advance to the Final Four at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Memorial Day weekend.
