Temper, temper

This is somehow hard to believe, but Virginia coach Pete Gillen doesn't have a reputation for getting "T'd up".

When Gillen was called for a technical following a traveling violation on Gary Forbes, Cavs beat writers, not to mention Wake Forest coach Skip Prosser, tried to remember the last time that happened:

"Prosser, an assistant coach to Gillen for nine years at Xavier, said he could not remember seeing Gillen get a technical. UVa beat writers could remember only two other 'T's' in his six-plus seasons as Cavaliers coach."

Said Gillen:

"It wasn't language. I didn't curse, I don't think."
