UVA Basketball returns tonight against #5 Baylor after what has been a traumatic and horribly sad week in Charlottesville following Sunday night’s tragedy. While Virginia sports are returning to action, we want to emphasize that these athletes should be given the absolute benefit of the doubt as they head into competition despite still grieving the deaths of their classmates, friends, and brothers.

Additionally, as the families of Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler, and D’Sean Perry continue to mourn the losses of their loved ones, you can help them to get through these times by donating to the verified GoFundMe fundraisers which we have linked in this article.
