    legitimate shot in their game against Virginia, even though the Spiders play in
    the Football Championship Subdivision and the Cavaliers are in one of the Power
    Five conference.But even Lauletta never expected the Spiders to dominate.They
    did Saturday as the senior threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns, the defense
    held Virginia to negative rushing yards heading into the fourth quarter and the
    Spiders rolled to a 37-20 victory, spoiling Bronco Mendenhalls debut at
    Virginia.When we can run and pass like that, were tough to beat, the redshirt
    junior said.The Spiders outgained Virginia 524-302 in winning for just the third
    time in 33 meetings in the series. The victory was the fourth in Richmonds last
    nine meetings with an FBS-level school, but its first victory against the
    Cavaliers since 1946.Lauletta, the preseason offensive player of the year in the
    Colonial Athletic Association, teamed up with Tyler Wilkins for scoring throws
    of 11 and 5 yards, and hit Brian Brown for 11 yards. He also sidestepped
    Virginias pressure on several occasions.We responded extremely well to adversity
    and we answered, really, every time we had to answer throughout the course of
    the game, said Spiders coach Danny Rocco, whose team reached the FCS semifinals
    last season. Our team expected to win.The Cavaliers, on the other hand, gave
    Mendenhall and his staff their first glimpse at the rebuilding job that lies
    ahead.The clarity is the excitement and optimism and hope is what Ive been
    mentioning and eventually I said the execution would catch up, Mendenhall said.
    That part is further behind than I thought. ... Im surprised. I learned a lot
    today.The coach, who won 99 games in 11 seasons at BYU before replacing Mike
    London last December, also felt like he got a glimpse of the past for Virginia,
    which hasnt made it to a bowl game since 2011. Mendenhalls team went to one
    every year.I think they want to be resilient and I think they want to believe
    and have new habits but there is some history here and there was some reversion
    to that today, he said. My job is to help them build great habits.Kurt Benkert
    threw for three touchdowns in his first start at Virginia, but two came in the
    final quarter after Richmond had taken a 30-7 lead. Benkert also threw an
    interception deep in Spiders territory, one of turnovers for the Cavaliers.Its
    just a little bit of a road bump and its going to set up a great story, Benkert
    said.TAKEAWAYSRICHMOND: The Spiders, 33-7 losers to North Dakota State in the
    FCS semifinals last year, have to be considered favorites to get back. The
    offensive line had little trouble handling Virginia up front and Lauletta makes
    good decisions, can make all the throws and extend plays with his feet. Staying
    healthy will be critical.VIRGINIA: The defense struggled mightily in its first
    game in Mendenhalls 3-4 alignment. There were numerous missed assignments and
    missed tackles galore. The Spiders moved the ball at will at times, and Lauletta
    was hardly ever bothered by pressure. What little he faced, he usually
    sidestepped it pretty easily.BAD STARTRichmond scored twice before the Cavaliers
    ever ran an offensive play from scrimmage. The Spiders drove 64 yards in eight
    plays after the opening kickoff to a 28-yard field goal by Griffin Trau. On the
    ensuing kickoff, Connor Wingo-Reeves was stripped of the ball and Jevaris Little
    recovered for the Spiders at the 36. Six plays later, Trau connected from 25
    yards and it was 6-0.Virginia turned it over against on the next drive after
    marching inside the Richmond 10. Taquan Mizzell was stripped on a run into the
    line by Brendan Coniker, who also recovered, and the Spiders then drove 95 yards
    in 10 plays to Wilkins first TD catch.Ricky Segers later boomed a 50-yard field
    goal for the Spiders.UP NEXTRICHMOND: The Spiders open their home schedule
    against Norfolk State.VIRGINA: The Cavaliers travel across the country to face
    No. 24 Oregon, finishing a home-and-home series that started with the Ducks
    winning 59-10 at Virginia in 2013.

    . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning
    acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and
    be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah
    Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. David Warner,
    it turns out, is not the first left-handed Australian opener to lose the plot
    with Joe Root. Not by a good decade or so. Way back, when Root was far too young
    to enter a Walkabout pub, a young fellow got upset with him - a very young
    fellow who may even become Warners batting partner in Tests one day. His name
    was Matt Renshaw.True, Renshaw was not at the time Australian. He was as English
    as Queen Elizabeth, though somewhat better at batting. And he got plenty of
    batting practice, often at the expense of Root, who was five years his senior.
    Renshaws father, Ian, and Roots dad, Matt, played together in the firsts at
    Sheffield Collegiate, and the two boys would take the field after play.We used
    to play on the outfield after the game, which was a lot of fun, Renshaw told
    ESPNcricinfo. I went back to England in 2014 and I caught up with him and their
    family for a week or so. One of the first things he said was he never used to
    get a bat, it was always me. Then, if I got out, Id start crying. I think I
    ended up doing most of the batting.To be fair, Renshaw was young enough that
    crying was still an acceptable response to being dismissed. By the age of seven,
    he had moved with his family to New Zealand. When he was nearly 11, the Renshaws
    moved again, this time to Brisbane, and have been there ever since. Renshaw
    found a new national identity, and now, at 20, is about to make his Australia A
    debut.It could easily have worked out differently. Renshaw said he never felt
    like a New Zealander during his four years there, but England was a different
    story. He still has a British passport, and when he left on that same trip back
    home in 2014, he did so with the thought in the back of his mind that pursuing a
    career in England could be a possibility.There was a time when I went to
    England, I wasnt signed to anyone over here and I was thinking it could be a
    possibility, Renshaw said. But then, a week into my trip there, on my 18th
    birthday, I got a text from Dad saying Queensland want to sign you on a rookie
    contract. That made my decision pretty easy.Queensland knew it was worth
    investing in Renshaw. He became the youngest batsman to make his first-class
    debut for Queensland since Martin Love, and in his fifth match he ground out
    170, making him the Bulls youngest Shield centurion of all time. The previous
    record-holder, Love, was at that match in Mackay, working as the Queenslland
    physio.ddddddddddddI was in the ice bath and someone came and mentioned that
    stat, Renshaw said. He looked over and gave me the little Lovey smile and said
    youve got 30 more to go to beat my overall hundreds.One of the most remarkable
    things about Renshaws effort was that, at 19, he had the patience required to
    bed in on a slow and challenging Mackay pitch. His 170 took nearly nine hours,
    and featured just seven fours and two sixes. That meant 130 runs had come in a
    combination of ones, twos and threes.Growing up, I went to the first Twenty20
    match, Australia v New Zealand at Eden Park, Renshaw said. Everyone was getting
    into the Twenty20 mode. But I could never really hit those big balls because of
    my size. I always loved Test cricket as well.Ive got quite good at switching on
    and off between balls. Its something Ive worked on. When I was younger, I wasnt
    the biggest player, so the only way I could really score runs was to nurdle them
    around and try to bat for as long as I could, which I loved.Id like to expand.
    Ive been doing a lot of work in this off-season,trying to work out my one-day
    game, and, hopefully, maybe get a game in one-day cricket in the future. But Ive
    got my opportunity with longer form cricket, so I dont want to try and make
    something in the short form and then lose that longer form.Renshaw nominates
    Alastair Cook as the kind of batsman he would like to become. Not surprisingly,
    he has watched a fair bit of England over the years, given his parentage. His
    father, a university sports scientist who moved around for work, bought the DVD
    box set of the 2005 Ashes, which a young Renshaw watched, thinking that one day
    he might like to play for England.Instead, he has already played for the
    Australia Under-19s, and, after finishing fifth on the Sheffield Shield run
    tally last season with 738 at 43.41, this weekend is likely to mark his debut
    for Australia A in their four-day match against South Africa A in Brisbane. When
    he first wore the Australian colours, it was not Renshaw, but his parents who
    found it a little bit strange to see.I think it was probably harder for Mum and
    Dad watching me, he said, because theyd lived in England their whole life, and
    then watching me play Under-19s for Australia, theyre like who do I support
    here? ' ' '
