Virginia wraps up summer basketball with a hammer and a swish (or two)

The Hoos volunteer in the community, and a couple players appear to have worked on their range...

It appears that Virginia Basketball has wrapped up their summer training (it is August now, after all). For the past few weeks, both second year Ty Jerome and redshirt first year DeAndre Hunter have been posting videos to their Instagram stories. At least three times, the duo hits back to back half-court shots before running off the court.

Well, now we have proof.

(For those curious, the sports-bra looking items they are wearing measure vitals as they play.)

While I don’t think Hunter and Jerome magically will have the green light to pull up from mid-court during any moment that’s not with two seconds left on the clock, it’s still fun to see.

Off the court, the team was busy in the community as they volunteered their time with Habitat for Humanity.

Beyond the awesomeness of the team helping those in need, we also got to see Jay Huff in a hard hat. All around a win-win.

Although the full schedule isn’t released just yet (and probably won’t be until mid-September), we do know some about Virginia’s non-conference and ACC schedule, including some new information regarding the NIT Season Tip-Off. The end of summer means the end of fun trick shots, but it also means we are that much closer to the actual season starting.
