How about a little good news on the basketball front?
Regarded as one of the most deadly shooters in the entire class of 2016, Virginia signee Kyle Guy will have an opportunity to showcase his skills on one of the grandest stages of them all.
On Sunday night, the 6-foot-2, 165-pound Guy was one of 24 elite high school basketball prospects across the nation to be selected to participate in the 2016 McDonald's All-American Game.

Fellow UVa signees DeAndre Hunter and Ty Jerome were also McDonald's All-American nominees.
Guy will play for the West team, joining future ACC ballers Frank Jackson (Duke) and Dewan Huell (Miami). Former UVa commit and Kentucky signee Sacha Killeya-Jones will play for the East team. Guy and SKJ had built quite a bond during the short time that the latter was committed to Virginia, so it will be interesting to see the two friends square off.
Considering everyone on the current UVa's roster not named London Perrantes' ability to consistently hit outside shots, Guy will fill a huge void in the Wahoo offense in 2016-17 and beyond.
The McDonald's All-American Game is scheduled for March 30 from the United Center in Chicago at 9:00 p.m.
