Do you think UVA men’s basketball will make the NCAA Tournament this year?

We’re polling UVA fans to see how much the Notre Dame loss has dented the perception of this year’s squad.

NCAA Basketball: Virginia at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Virginia Cavaliers just lost by 22 points to a bad Notre Dame Fighting Irish team. We put out our five takeaways from the loss, but also figured this would be a good time to gauge the feelings of the UVA fanbase about the current state of this team and the program overall.

So first up, do you think UVA will make the NCAA Tournament this season? Virginia sits at 10-3 (1-1 ACC) with a couple of good wins against Texas A&M and Florida, two blowout losses to good Memphis and Wisconsin teams, and another blowout loss to a bad Notre Dame team.

Next up, we all know how important it is to finish top-four in the ACC to earn the double bye in the ACC Tournament. It’s also typically a metric for being among the upper echelon of the conference.

Thirdly, it will have been nearly five years since UVA has won an NCAA Tournament game when March Madness rolls around again in a few months’ time. Will the ‘Hoos get the monkey off their back and win a game in the tourney this year? (If you voted that they wouldn’t make the tournament, then obviously you should answer no to this question as well.)

Now, UVA did of course win the ACC regular season last year, the team WON IT ALL in 2019, and (even despite a post-NCAA Championship drop off) has still been one of the best ACC programs since.

But there has been a down-tick in success, and before the new year the ‘Hoos have already lost by 20 points three times this season, something no Virginia team has done throughout an entire season since Tony Bennett’s second year in Charlottesville.

With all of that in mind...
