The Virginia Cavaliers men's basketball team is the intercollegiate men's basketball program representing the University of Virginia. The school competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Virginia has won the NCAA Championship, two National Invitation Tournaments, and three ACC tournament titles. The team is coached by Tony Bennett and plays home games at the on-campus John Paul Jones Arena (14,623) which opened in 2006. They have been called the Cavaliers since 1923, predating the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA by half a century.
Virginia went from the wrong side of basketball history in 2018 to making history in 2019. The Cavaliers won the NCAA DI men's basketball championship in Minneapolis with an 85-77 overtime victory over Texas Tech. The triumph came the season after the Cavaliers became the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed in the NCAA tournament.
Guy sank all three to give Virginia a one-point lead and the win in the final second. \"These are moments that every basketball player has dreamed of,\" Guy said afterward. \"Kind of had that feeling in your stomach, like in a nervousness, like, all right, this is my chance. To be able to go to the championship off of that for these guys and coach Bennett, I really don't have words.\"
If you're not familiar with Furman's basketball team, there's a good reason for it. The last time the Paladins made the NCAA Tournament was in 1980. They are snapping a 43-year March Madness drought by virtue of their SoCon title in 2023.
The reason that the Paladins made it to the NCAA Tournament was their high-flying offense. They rank 12th in the NCAA in 3-point shot attempts per game with 27.5 and rely on those shots to key their offense. They only make 34.7 percent of those 3-pointers, good for 154th across college basketball, but that's enough to anchor their offense.
