March Madness is Just Coming Into View

+

I tell the players that they can’t relive any day in their lives and that they can’t relive the minutes of a game, so they should make a great effort, a Mount Everest type effort, to live up to their potential. Success is a communal type thing, and if we win, then everyone can be considered successful and we can move uptown together.

In the most recent AP Top 25 Men's Basketball Poll, Virginia holds the 22nd position

+

In the most recent AP Top 25 Men's Basketball Poll, Virginia holds the 22nd position. The Cavaliers reclaimed their spot in the Top 25 after securing a decisive 77-47 victory over NC Central last week, marking their fourth consecutive win. UVA's return to the Top 25 can be attributed largely to other ranked teams experiencing losses last week, particularly San Diego State and Texas A&M, both of which dropped out of the Top 25.

Coach on Culture

+

"I think recruiting starts in your own locker room. That's where we're going to start. We're going to build a culture that recruits itself. So we're going to have an inside-out mentality, meaning that we're recruiting the person first and the player second. So we're going to have to do a great job of evaluation and identifying those guys that fit the profile on both ends, from an academic standpoint and an athletic standpoint." -Tony Elliott

Sacramento Kings make surprise picks in unpredictable draft, but fans ‘shouldn’t worry about it’

+

"Guy was one of 101 prospects who participated in pre-draft workouts with the Kings and the only player who came back for a second visit. Divac said Guy, the all-time leader at Virginia in 3-point shooting at 42.5 percent, was one of the most gifted shooters in the draft. "His shooting is just exceptional," Divac said. "I’m very confident he’s one of the best shooters in this class. He’s just unbelievable. When we had him first time, it was like everybody, we were so excited, like, ‘We’ve got to bring him again to see if he was just lucky,’ and, no, he was making a lot of shots the second time, too. If you talk about Kyle’s game and say one thing that is elite, it is definitely shooting is an elite weapon for him.""

Brogdon vs. Harris 12.1.16

+

Highlights from the Milwaukee Bucks vs. the Brooklyn Nets 12.1.16, featuring Malcolm Brogdon and Joe Harris. At around 1:17 in the video you can see Brogdon come over to try and take the ball from Harris, and if you watch 3:51 through 4:18 you can watch Brogdon and Harris trading threes. I was hoping to see Harris actually guarding Brogdon (or vice versa), but I haven't been able to find a video of the full game.
