This Week's Games: The Cavaliers open the home portion of the 2005 schedule tonight as they host Charlotte. Virginia is coming off a second place finish at the UCSB adidas Classic, defeating UC-Riverside 2-0 on Friday and playing host UCSB to a scoreless draw on Sunday. Charlotte is looking for its first win of the season after losses at Davidson and UNC-Greensboro to open the season.

The Cavaliers have a 24-3-3 all-time record against current members of the Atlantic 10 (Charlotte 1-0-0, George Washington 3-0-0, Rhode Island 2-0-0, Richmond 13-1-1, Saint Louis, 3-2-2, Temple 2-0-0).
