Virginia basketball dunks all over Louisville in upset win

The Virginia basketball team put on a show Monday night during its upset win over No. 4 Louisville.

Virginia was able to take advantage of its lockdown defense to create multiple fast-break opportunities for easy dunks en route to a dominant 71-55 victory.

It was a great way for the Cavaliers to bounce back from a loss to Syracuse over the weekend.

Here was one of the easy buckets in transition.

At the end of the night, everyone noticed the uncharacteristic dunking clinic the Cavaliers put on.

Does Virginia ever dunk this much? Six dunks tonight.

Didn't expect Virginia to have a second-half dunk contest against Louisville.
