The Virginia Cavaliers men’s basketball team updated its roster to reflect the jersey numbers for the six players expected to make their UVA debuts in the 2020-21 season.

Jabri Abdur-Rahim, Reece Beekman, and Carson McCorkle formed the three-headed monster that propelled Tony Bennett’s 2020 recruiting class to a top-20 ranking. Walk-on guard Malachi Poindexter, who played his prep ball at St. Anne’s-Belfield in Charlottesville, is the other member of the Hoos’ freshman class.

Transfers round out the sextet: Sam Hauser, the sharp-shooting forward who sat out last season after transferring from Marquette; and Trey Murphy III, the 6-foot-9 guard transfer from Rice. Murphy will follow in Hauser’s footsteps and take a transfer redshirt this season.

The jersey numbers posted on VirginiaSports.com are:

  • #1 - Jabri Abdur-Rahim (6’7, 207)
  • #2 - Reece Beekman (6’3, 168)
  • #10 - Sam Hauser (6’8, 225)
  • #11 - Malachi Poindexter (6’2, 195)
  • #25 - Trey Murphy III (6’9, 205)
  • #33 - Carson McCorkle (6’3, 177)
