Sunday morning dawned crisp and clear in Charlottesville—a hero’s welcome for the Virginia Cavaliers basketball team, who returned from Louisville as champions of the South Region and with tickets punched to the Final Four

Fans gathered at Disharoon Park a little after 3:00 PM to greet the Hoos with raucous applause. Dave Koehn served as master of ceremonies, while coach Tony Bennett addressed the crowd.
