Last Ball at UHall
It will also be Senior Night, but the only senior player lost will be Billy Campbell. This fact, tomorrow's game, and the season as a whole will set up next season starting at the new John Paul Jones Arena. In a season with a first-year coach and prediction to finish last in the ACC in basketball, a win tomorrow would give Virginia an 8-8 record in conference and guarantee a finish no lower than 7th. Losing no scholarship players, expectations will be high for next season, and an impatient Virginia fanbase will start to look at Coach Dave Leitao with a far more critical eye.
Tomorrow will be the end of an era for Virginia basketball, but part of the beginning of another, not just at a new stadium, but hopefully for a team that will continue to amaze and astound Wahoos everywhere. I'll be at the stadium nice and early tomorrow, and I hope everyone else attending the game will be loud and excited as well.
