NCAA Basketball: Final Four-National Championship-Virginia vs Texas Tech Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Today (March 22) at 2pm, CBS is re-airing the Virginia Cavaliers’ dramatic first-ever NCAA Basketball National Championship. With no NCAA tournament going on due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, CBS has decided to air some of the best title games instead. Yesterday, you were able to see Georgetown-North Carolina (1982) and NC State-Houston (1983), and CBS is airing 2008’s Memphis-Kansas title game leading into Virginia’s victory.

As if re-watching one of the most exciting games in Virginia basketball history wasn’t enough, you have extra incentive. UVA announced that the Big Three — Kyle Guy, Ty Jerome, and De’Andre Hunter — will be live-tweeting the game from Virginia’s official men’s basketball account (@UVAMensHoops).

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! Guy announced that he would be live on his Twitch stream, meaning he would be giving fans a glimpse at his actual reactions. According to his tweet, he’s never watched this game...

There will also be other opportunities to see Virginia’s dramatic run to the title in the coming week. Starting at 6pm ET on Tuesday, 24 March, CBS Sports Network will air Virginia’s Elite Eight (vs Purdue), Final Four (vs Auburn), and title game (vs. Texas Tech) in succession. For you super night owls, they will re-air on the same channel from midnight to 6am, right after the conclusion of the first sequence.

The Cavaliers’ thrilling title run started one year ago today as they put together a dramatic second half comeback against 16-seed Gardner-Webb.

If we can’t have current basketball, this is certainly the next best thing.
