    Its been a great year for basketball. First UVA won the NCAA. And then Raptors won the NBA.

    As a die hard UVA fan since 2012-13, this is hands down the ultimate comeback and greatest redemption story in the history is sports. I might never see them win another championship in my lifetime but this was well worth it 🔶⚔️🔷 I’m 21 by the way

    Brilliant coaching, teamwork and execution by these Virginia players. How much fun to watch them make it happen. Shame that four of the starters have decided to skip senior year and declare for the NBA. That's the downside. But, what a brilliant season and such clutch plays. Wahoo-wah

      Not just those who take it seriously but also the ones who just like to insert their foot in their mouth to provide an opinion; even though they have no knowledge of what truly happened in the game!

      Shane, height has nothing to do with how well u can defend or not! It comes from drive and want-to! Clark brings energy to every UVa possession when he's out there

    I was rooting for the Texans but Virginia was clearly the better team. Superb game as always. Virginia led almost the whole game and unlike Texas tech when they did get behind they could accelerate to an 8 point lead
    almost in nanoseconds. In a series Texas tech would never see a game 7 against Virginia. They would be done by then. I heard it all on radio on a long drive.

      As a school in all sports:
      UVA has 26 National Titles. Texas Tech has 4

    If Culver would have just gotten out of the way his teammates could have probably won it in spite of him. But I knew he would try to take over and show he was the man. If he could have just repressed his ego a little longer.

I still remember that heartbreaking defeat against NC State in the '83 regional finals but he never made excuses! And he showed up at every one of Virginia's tournament games this season to back his boys! I love that true commitment from a man! Shows the person he is

    VA had the lead for a long, long time in the 2nd half.....and when they lost the lead with only 35 seconds to play a lot of teams would have buckled and choked. How did VA respond? With total confidence, Hunter hit the 3 pointer with 12 seconds left to tie the game.......VA are the new Cardiac Kids.

    Even though I’m a Texas Tech fan, I have to say that this was one of the greatest championship games in the past few years. What hurt Texas Tech in this game were two 3-pointers by Virginia at two specific points. The first one was at the end of the first half when the Cavaliers hit the 3-pointer to go up 32-29. The second one was towards the end of the game when Hunter hit the 3 to tie game and sent it to overtime.

  • Juan Ramirez

    Last year, while I was basking in the glorious final minutes of UMBC's
    upset of number 1 seeded Virginia a single Cavalier player stood out as
    trying to will his team back from an impossible deficit. That kid Guy
    represents the best in all of us and is the reason I love college
    sports… Congratulations "Number 5"! So-o-o well DESERVED!

    Why is everyone talking about redemption. They were and have been great team for yrs. They were cocky and took opponents to lightly. They learned from their mistake but certainly no redemption period. Getting beat out by a 16 seed last yr. Theres no absolutely no redemption from that lol idc. You made up for it but no redemption can be made by getting knocked out as a no1 by a 16 seed

      Don't blame it all on one guy! It's a team sport and if anyone or anything was to blame for Duke's demise, it was the selfishness of Cam Reddish! Duke losing had noth to do with Barrett or Zion! The total lack of improvement in Reddish's game held Duke back from realizing their full potential as a squad! His attitude also held Duke back!

      Shaking my head about the overturned call where the ball was knocked out the player's hand out of bounds. Not even gonna debate that one because Guy clearly fouled the player from behind right before it happened.

    • FUQALL
      FUQALL 2 months ago +5

      So you're not gonna talk about the ball going off the back of Odiase's hand when he blocked that shot and Virginia was up one and would have retained possession, but instead the ball was given to Texas Tech, or the rebound Kyle Guy got that was ruled a jump ball, when the guy swiping at the ball from behind, hit Guy across the head, albeit a slight hit, but contact to the head non the less. Look at when Culver just ran over Clark, watch closely, he extended his arm for a push off, so if were gonna be technical, by rule that should have been ruled an offensive foul as well. What about when Mooney camped out in the lane for longer than 3 seconds on that basket he made. So a game can be looked at anyway you want, based on the side you're cheering for. Virginia was the better team the majority of the game, and deserved to win. By the way, i had a very sizable wager on them as well, laying the point and a half.

      Maybe you should research the team before making such a way off comment. Not a good look for you. Very misinformed. To be clear, Hunter is a projected top 5 lottery pick. TY Jerome is slated as a late round 1st or early 2nd round pick. Guy and Diakite have also declared for the NBA. Jury is out on those 2. Bottom line is 4 players are putting their hat in the draft pool. So explain the reasoning of your comment.
