Final Four: Virginia's Guy comfortable shooting everywhere

Virginia junior guard Kyle Guy is comfortable shooting in the driveway or the gym. He got up shots at Harlem's Rucker Park and now can say he's splashed a few in a football stadium, too. "As a shooter, obviously, you have to be confident in yourself, and your teammates have to be confident in you, and with that confidence, it doesn't matter where you're shooting," said Guy, who put up 25 points and made five huge 3-pointers to keep Virginia in the West Region final against Purdue. "You could be shooting at Rucker Park in Harlem, or you could be shooting in a football stadium. You just have to have confidence. Obviously, it's very nice that we get to practice here twice, so we can kind of get a feel for it. But when the ball is tipped, it doesn't matter what the backdrop is. It's just we prepared for this, and we're going to be ready." Tennis: Keys tops Stephens to reach semis in Charleston
