2012 Virginia Basketball Player Profiles
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Mike Tobey
Mike Tobey, a skilled center from Connecticut, has the potential to blossom into an all-conference caliber player.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Teven Jones
Virginia guard Teven Jones helped the program as a practice body in 2011-2012. This year, he looks to make an impact on the court.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Taylor Barnette
Taylor Barnette seemingly came out of nowhere to sign with the Cavaliers in May. Now, a few months later, the Hoos are depending on Barnette to play significant minutes early in the season.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Darion Atkins
Sophomore PF Darion Atkins will be counted on to provide rebounding and shot blocking for the Hoos this year. With the graduation of two starting frontcourt players, Atkins is in line to be the starting PF.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Caid Kirven
Caid Kirven, a 6'8'' freshman forward, will join the Virginia Cavaliers program as a walk on this year. The Woodberry Forest product will make his biggest impact on the program in practice, not in games.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Justin Miller
Justin Miller, a walk-on guard from Missouri, is yet another intriguing addition to the Cavaliers program.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Doug Browman
With the injuries to Jontel Evans and Malcolm Brogdon, as well as the suspension of freshman Teven Jones, there is only one true PG on the Virginia roster. That is walk-on senior Doug Browman. What can we expect from him?
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Paul Jesperson
Sophomore swingman Paul Jesperson struggled in limited action last year, after being forced into action rather than redshirt. Hopefully, that playing time will help him going forward. His length and shooting will help this team be successful.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Evan Nolte
Evan Nolte's ability to score in a variety of ways will be a crucial asset for the Cavaliers this year.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Malcolm Brogdon
Malcolm Brogdon had a strong freshman season for the Hoos, and showed a lot of promise. He's hurt now, and his status for this season is unknown. What do Wahoo fans have to look forward for this season and beyond for the youngster?
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Akil Mitchell
Junior PF Akil Mitchell is likely to be the starting center for the Hoos to open the season. He's a high flyer, who uses elite athleticism and quick hops to work on the boards and to finish at the rim. While he isn't a true 5, he is capable.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Justin Anderson
Justin Anderson was a major recuiting coup for the Cavaliers, when he decommitted from Maryland last year. As a freshman, Anderson could have a big impact in orange & blue.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Joe Harris
Junior swingman Joe Harris figures to be one of the leaders for the Hoos this season. As the leading returning scorer, he'll be counted on for points, but with the injuries to Jontel Evans and Malcolm Brogdon, Joe will be playing some PG early on.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Jontel Evans
Senior PG Jontel Evans is the heart and soul of the Hoos this year. His injury will keep him out of the opener, and possibly beyond that. Those games are going to be important for the Hoos to hang on without Jontel.
UVA Basketball Player Profile: Thomas Rogers
Walk-on Thomas Rogers is a 6'6" shooting guard who can flat out shoot the rock. He isn't likely to get much playing time this season, due to the depth we have on the wing. But if he is forced into the action, the Hoos will be ok.
Player Profile: Anthony Gill
Transfer Anthony Gill should make a big impact in Virginia's frontcourt....next year.
