Evaluating the Virginia men’s basketball roster heading into 2021-22

With Trey Murphy getting picked 17th overall in the 2021 NBA draft, the 2021-2022 Virginia Cavaliers men’s basketball roster is essentially set in stone. The transfer season is just about over, and while there’s always the slim possibility of a late class of 2022 commit re-classing to join the ‘Hoos in the fall, that’s unlikely to be of any significant impact for this upcoming season.

Virginia football faces a few questions ahead of fall camp

After improving every season since his arrival in Charlottesville, Bronco Mendenhall and the Wahoos stuttered in 2020. After winning the ACC Coastal and playing Florida in the Orange Bowl in early 2020, the Cavs managed to finish 5-5 last season, losing to Virginia Tech and opting out of a bowl game.

Guess 'Hoos back: why I chose to return to Charlottesville to cover Virginia sports

I had just left Bronco Mendenhall's first press conference as Virginia football's new head coach. It was bittersweet because I was saying goodbye. After cutting my teeth in reporting in Charlottesville, working for Scout Media, I was set to move to Gainesville, Florida to cover the Florida Gators and the SEC. I had some amazing memories from my first beat, including following Virginia basketball's journey to its first ACC Tournament crown since 1976 in 2014.

Capone: Virginia football has fallen behind in ACC facility arms race

Gerry Capone is a rarity in college football. He came to Virginia as a part-time assistant to George Welsh in 1982 and has never left. His longevity under four different head coaching regimes speaks volumes to his hard work, dilligence and loyalty. He transitioned to football administration early in his UVA career and recently transitioned to an even more important role in Virginia football.

2022 wing Leon Bond commits to Virginia

The Virginia Cavaliers men’s basketball program just landed its second commit of the 2022 class in 6’5 wing Leon Bond. Out of Milwaukee, Bond’s recruitment went from zero to 100 incredibly quickly this summer and Tony Bennett moved quickly to steal Bond from midwest suitors including Marquette. Scouting Report.

Georgia Tech Football: Opponent Previews - Virginia

The ACC’s COVID altered schedule meant that Georgia Tech did not face UVA on the football field for the first time since 1981. The series has been back and forth recently, with each team winning two of the last four matchups. Virginia enters Bronco Mendenhall’s fifth season as head coach, and the former BYU coach has certainly stabilized a program that had been in decline under Mike London. The ‘Hoos did take a step back in 2020 after Bryce Perkins captained the team to a combined 17 wins in 2018-2019. With a roster that ranks only 93rd in Bill Connelly’s returning production metric, are they looking at more of the same in 2021?
