If you’re a basketball fan who’s been on the Internet recently, there’s a good chance you’ve run into an article with this general premise: build your dream team with $15, with every player having a preset monetary value based on how good they are. Now it’s our turn, and I’ve made a few changes.


  • You have $20 to work with.
  • You can pick any six players - five starters and a sixth man - and one coach.

Got it?


  • $10: Ralph Sampson
  • $5: Malcolm Brogdon, Jeff Lamp, Barry Parkhill, Sean Singletary, Bryant Stith, Wally Walker, Buzzy Wilkinson
  • $2: John Crotty, Harold Deane, Joe Harris, Curtis Staples, Justin Anderson, Lee Raker, Travis Watson, Mike Scott, Akil Mitchell, Olden Polynice
  • $1: Every other player in UVa history, along with coaches Tony Bennett and Terry Holland
  • All other coaches are free.

For example, you can pick Ralph Sampson, a $5 player, a $2 player, three $1 players and a free coach.

So, who’s your pick for the all-time UVa team with a salary cap? Let us know in the comments below!

If you’re curious, here are my picks:

PG: London Perrantes

SG: Jeff Lamp

SF: Justin Anderson

PF: Chris Williams

C: Ralph Sampson

Sixth man: J.R. Reynolds

Coach: Jeff Jones
