The Hoos are heading to Orlando to take on UNC-Wilmington in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Virginia vs Pittsburgh

The official NCAA tournament bracket was released tonight, and the Hoos earned the #5 seed in the East bracket. First up, Virginia will have to travel to Orlando to play UNC-Wilmington. Florida and East Tennessee complete their region. Virginia’s first game will be Thursday, with the tip-time to be announced.

A few reactions indicated not a lot of confidence in Virginia’s chances. Clark Kellogg on the CBS broadcast already predicted Virginia to lose, and the UVA-UNCW matchup will be a very popular 12/5 upset to pick.

Luckily, our own Matt Trogdon brought another thing to consider to the discussion.

Virginia vs UNC-W should be fun, but the path for the Hoos certainly won’t be easy. It does offer up a lot of chances for good matchups (or rematches) as Duke, Virginia Tech, and Villanova are all in the East with the Hoos.

Virginia’s path to the Final Four won’t be easy, but There is some good news, though...

Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome are ready, though.
