Remember how awesome UVA's past two seasons were? Here are seven cool stats to help you remember before the season starts in 28 days.

It has been almost seven months since the Virginia Cavaliers Men's Basketball season ended, so it can be easy to forget some of the cool statistics the team accomplished over the past two years. Here are some of the highlights to get you pumped up for the upcoming season:

  • UVA won back to back ACC regular season championships for the first time since 1982-83 and the first time ever outright. It was the first time a team other than UNC or Duke did so since 1974.
  • The Cavaliers went 51-7 in their last 58 games. Four of those losses came against the Duke Blue Devils and Michigan State Spartans. Only one of those seven losses was at home.
  • The Hoos went 36-5 in the ACC the past two seasons, the best stretch of any ACC team since Duke in 2000.
  • UVA started 28-1 last season, which was the best start in the program's history.
  • Virginia's defense allowed an average of only 50.2 points per game, the lowest in the country since 1992 and the schools lowest in 70 years.
  • The Cavaliers scored more than double their ACC opponents twice (70-34 over Wake Forest and 57-28 over Georgia Tech). It had only happened once before in ACC history.
  • Virginia reached as high as #2 in the AP Poll for the first time since 1983 and was ranked in the top 10 all year.

Hopefully the Hoos can keep up the success this season.
