UVA - Iowa turned out to be a good game.
UVA won’t sustain tremendous success under Tony Bennett.. the guy runs the most boring offense (with suffocating defense). No big time players are going to go there. He’s a really good coach like Herb Sendek though.

Agreed. They'll be consistent, always knowing what you'll get from them.

Is this sarcasm? Just how long does success have to persist for you to consider it sustained? Over the past 8 seasons, UVA has finished 1st in the conference rankings 5 times, 2d two other times and 5th once. That's lights out.

They did win a natty too. They aren't flashy, but they are consistent in what they do (primarily Defense and baskketball IQ) You just don't think of UVA as college basketball royalty like Puke, UNCheat, Kansas or Kentucky which is very advantageous for them.

They have the coaching. They won’t get the upper echelon talent though. I couldn’t tell you the name of any UVA player since Ralph Sampson.

that just makes it all the more impressive that UVA won a natty.

Pitt is hard to watch. Looking at Capel doesn’t help.

Then maybe you don’t follow bball that closely? Malcolm Brogden was ACC POY and NBA ROY.
