It’s senior day for the Virginia Cavaliers, which means John Paul Jones Arena honored the Hoos’ three student managers, Ben Buell, Justin Maxey and Faris Wasim, and one student athlete, Jack Salt, in a pregame ceremony accompanied by their respective families.
In case you weren’t in Charlottesville for it, you can watch the entire pre-game ceremony here:

A number of former Virginia players, including London Perrantes, Marial Shayok, and Jarred Reuter, sent in their videos of well wishes to Salt.
“Coach Bennett’s definitely going to miss out on one of the toughest players he’s ever had,” said Devon Hall. Isaiah Wilkins also phoned in to reminisce of their daily Chipotle trips, whereby Salt would be surprised at his $25 bill, after ordering triple meat.
As we wrote earlier this week, his job at Virginia may not be done yet, but he’s already left his legacy here.
