...and I have a few quick thoughts.
1) Virginia was good enough to play on this stage. We lost a 50/50 game against Michigan State, else I think we would have had a great chance to beat UConn and make it to Dallas.
2) All week, I was thinking that the main thing separating UVA from these teams that made the Final Four was a legit go-to low post scorer. I'm talking about something better than rolled-ankle Anthony Gill. Frank the Tank Kaminski, Julius Randle, Patric Young. That concept is still true, but there's something to be said for the old cliché about guard play in the Tournament. Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright, damn.
3) On the topic of Napier and Boatright... I'm [slightly] concerned that Tony Bennett isn't recruiting/landing guards with that kind of speed and athleticism. Brog is great, London Perrantes is great, but they are not anything like Shabazz Napier. Not many players are, I guess.
4) I think the ACC should just go ahead and bring in a 16th member -- UConn. They don't help in football, but they're by far the best "free agent" basketball school. Snap them up.
