Cavs look to protect ball against Louisiana Tech

     CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Virginia heads into its last non-conference game in desperate need of improving its minus-seven turnover margin.
     The Cavaliers have given the ball away 10 times, and taken it just three. If they aren't careful Saturday against Louisiana Tech, their margin could get a lot worse.
     The Bulldogs (3-0) rank sixth in the country with a plus-six turnover margin. That's a significant advantage for any team, but especially one ranked third nationally in scoring at 54.7 points per game.
     Coach Mike London says "taking care of the ball is absolutely a necessity" for Virginia (2-2) this week.
     Scoring and turnovers are not the only strengths for Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs also have won 11 consecutive regular season games dating to last season, and seven in a row on the road.
