    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

    never ceases to amaze me how seriously people take a game
    Just goes to show how far down the depths of depravity societies have fallen

      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

      To be fair, other than FSU, Clark has been disrupting opposing players all year.

    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
      🤔 I mean it is a technical school; so, I'd hope you're good at math, because *26>4*

      Honestly, I know a couple Louisville fans. You guys only hate UVA, because we've dominated the forced upon us rivalry. Also, you guys thought you'd come into the ACC and completely dominate and it hasn't, you're bitter.

    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.

    My 35 year wait is over , so sad that those Ralph Sampson teams of the early 80s couldn't do it and glad I'm still around to witness it, a redemption story that will go down in sports history...can't wait for the movie, Congrats Hoos.

      Cathlean Johnson My mom's brother is diehard UVa basketball fan and he's gotten to meet Chris Long already which was a thrill because he's a diehard Eagles fan too! He couldn't wait to text me the minute the Texas Tech game was over and asked me if I had watched I said of course

      @Brad Lewis I agree 100%, even though live in the Hampton U, William and Mary, ODU, Norfolk State territory I root for UVA and VA TECH also...

      Cathlean Johnson What I love about Ralph is the class and dignity he has shown throughout the yrs still lending the support to his alma mater! 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

      Did you see the foul they called on Moretti, Guy was tripped by his own teammate. It changed momentum since then, and by the way, Texas Tech shot 15 free throws vs 23 of VA. TTU could not buy a foul call in overtime.

    People only remember missed controversial calls but forget how the team beat every key moment under pressure.They won it because they are Virginia, they have the power to master the game. For any other teams I doubt if they have the perseverance for 3 consecutive heartbreaking minute in 3 games.

    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.

    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!

      @jakwiq I'm afraid that Jerome will leave. I don't think his draft stock will get any higher than it is now. He stepped up big time all tourney long.

      Only DeAndre Hunter.
      The other starters will be back and they'll probably have a strong recruiting class.
