Virginia shocked everyone in the 2013-2014 season when they won the ACC regular season title. The Cavaliers finished 30-7 on the year and possessed the best defense in the whole country. Their season ended, unfortunately, when they ran into the one team no one wants to see in March, Michigan State. Malcolm Brogdon, who led the Cavaliers in scoring last year, will be back in Charlottesville for the 2014-2015 season. Brogdon along with head coach Tony Bennett should have Virginia right back in the thick of things come this season.
The Virginia Cavaliers operate under Coach Tony Bennett at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. They have never won a national title but made the Final Four in 1981 and 1984 and have 18 Tournament appearances overall. 18 Virginia players have gone on to the NBA including Roger Mason, Mike Scott, Olden Polynice, John Crotty, Ralph Sampson, and Bryant Stith.
