GET EXCITED IT’S ALMOST BASKETBALL SEASON!! Thirty days from today, the new-look Virginia Cavaliers take the court to kick off the 2017-2018 season when they welcome UNC-Greensboro to John Paul Jones Arena.
In order to get you ready for tip off, we are bringing you THE COUNTDOWN: RETURN TO THE REDUX. Ok, we’ll work on the name. This is how it works...over the next 30 days, the staff here at Streaking the Lawn will provide you with at least one story per day filled with top-notch Virginia basketball coverage. The stories will range from player profiles introducing (or re-introducing) the current roster, to in-depth looks at Virginia’s non-conference and ACC schedules.
Want recaps from Virginia’s Media Day, the ACC’s Operation Basketball, and the Blue and White scrimmage? We got you.
Season predictions? Yep, no problems.
Are you concerned about the departure of London Perrantes, the transfers of Marial Shayok, Darius Thompson, and Jarred Reuter, and the lingering effects of no Austin Nichols? Got you covered.
We’ll also have podcasts with special guests, roundtables with our genius staff, and lots of stats and numbers for you.
This will all culminate with the game preview before the season opener on November 10 in Charlottesville at 7:00pm.
Don’t worry, the coverage of Virginia’s 4-1 (!!!) football team will continue throughout this process (don’t forget to check out the latest bowl update and the report card from Duke!).
First up, we’ll have the profile for redshirt first year Jay Huff later today. Get ready, Wahoo fans. It’s basketball season, and nobody does it better than Tony Bennett.
