If you are a breathing human that’s not a Texas Tech or Auburn fan, you are probably still pretty excited about the Virginia Cavaliers’ NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP in Men’s Basketball last spring. And you probably already know that this Friday night, September 13, the Hoos will be presenting championship rings to the players and raising the 2019 National Champions banner in JPJ.
The school released a teaser video promoting the new banner, and it’s as incredible as you had ever hoped. In case you’re not on Twitter, here’s a preview:

Probably gonna watch this 80 more times to try to piece together what this thing will look like. Already pleased it’s not an understated rectangular blue and orange banner with “National Champions” up top and 2019 stitched in below https://t.co/ydU8JmIY62— Tucker Martin (@jtuckermartin) September 11, 2019
If you can cite a more significant sports victory by any Commonwealth of Virginia sports entity, please RT. This from a person with beaucoup family UVA alumni, but, alas (and proudly) a Mizzou alum. https://t.co/Dmdt5KJUzT— Drew Babb (@DrewBabb) September 11, 2019
The event tips off at 7:30 p.m. at John Paul Jones Arena and will include remarks from head coach Tony Bennett and some of the players.
