+

The Virginia Cavaliers finished the season ranked as the #3 team in the nation according to KenPom, behind National Champion Villanova and runner-up UNC.

UVA was 5-1 against the KenPom top 10, beating Villanova, UNC, West Virginia, and Louisville twice, but falling in the ACC Championship game to UNC. The #3 finish is the highest in program history; the Hoos ended last season at #5 and the 2014 year at #4, though the team's end-of-year Pythagorean rating was highest at the end of last year.
