The answer: we don’t know either.

Obviously now the situation is a wait and watch for UVA. They have to get through the COVID protocols the NCAA is setting out.
The NCAA has remained adamant that a team only needs 5 players to play in the tournament, but given sources have told CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander that the UVA player is one that played against Syracuse on Thursday, that player is pretty important and the entire team mobbed each other at the end of the game.
COVID refuses to stop striking.
