Virginia Cavaliers Basketball Schedule

Every year when the college basketball season really begins to heats up John Paul Jones Arena, the Charlottesville, Virginia home of the Virginia Cavaliers' basketball team, is one of the most thrilling places in the world to be. For years the Cavaliers have proven themselves to be one of the elite teams in the ACC and are regularly a major factor in the NCAA Tournament in March. The Cavaliers' schedule is loaded with games against some of the best college basketball teams in the country and no Virginia college basketball fan will want to miss a second of the action at John Paul Jones Arena. UVA fans will want to get in on all of the excitement right from the start and to be in the arena to help cheer on the home team to another ACC championship.

Last season Virginia ran away with the ACC regular season title and earned themselves a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. They enter the 2014-2015 season with a bitter taste in their mouths after being knocked out of the Tournament in the Sweet Sixteen by Michigan State. The Cavs will be looking to repeat their success of a year ago and hopefully get even further in the NCAA Tournament in March. Life in the ACC is never easy and Virginia will have huge games against North Carolina, Duke, Syracuse, Louisville, and more as they try to stay at the top of the conference standings. It will not be easy to go 16-2 in the conference again this year but the Cavs are certainly up for the challenge. In the 2013-2014 season Virginia really turned some heads and emerged as one of the best and most exciting teams in the country but that was only the beginning as the Cavs are determined to finally bring home the National Championship that has eluded the program for well over a century.


Virginia Cavaliers Basketball Conference

College basketball is virtually synonymous with the ACC and it is never easy for a team to navigate the tough conference schedule. Perennial powerhouses North Carolina and Duke always are staunch competition and with the recent addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Notre Dame to the mix the conference is only getting tougher. Altogether the ACC has won 15 National Championships with North Carolina leading the way with five. Schools from the ACC have reached the Final Four sixty times and are always making a big impact in the Tournament. Playing such a tough regular season schedule annually leaves the teams from the ACC who are selected for the Tournament ready to take on any college in the country and allows for even some of the lower seeds to pull off big time upsets. When it comes to college basketball there is arguably no conference that is historically better or more dominant than the ACC.


Virginia Cavaliers Basketball History

The Cavaliers have yet to win their first National Championship but they have made the Final Four twice. Last season was a watershed year as Virginia won the ACC regular season title and conference tournament en route to a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. With some key returning players the Cavs and their fans should be in for an exciting 2014-2015 season. The Virginia Cavaliers are always looking to take down some of the powerhouse programs in the conference like Duke or North Carolina and over the years, as the Cavaliers have proven themselves to be regular contenders for the conference title, the intensity of these games has reached another level. Of course another major rival of the Cavaliers is the Maryland Terrapins and whether the two schools are facing off on the football field or the basketball court you can expect the rivalry to bring out the best from both sides. Although the 2013-2014 season was the last with Maryland as a conference foe you can expect that the rivalry will continue to be fierce whenever the two schools meet. With all of the new schools joining the ACC last year and this year there will certainly be new rivalries on the rise in the conference especially as Virginia has more and more big conference games against the newcomers including Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Notre Dame. Virginia first formed a basketball team for the 1905-1906 season and in more than 100 years of playing the Cavaliers have taken part in some of the most memorable games in the history of college hoops.


The Experience

College basketball is an experience like no other. Featuring some of the best student athletes in the world along with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports, the games have an atmosphere that is unrivaled. When you set foot into John Paul Jones Arena for a University of Virginia Cavaliers home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening tip off the fans stand up and vociferously cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of back and forth action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. Before you know it the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Cavaliers' side erupts after another big win and their fans flow out of the arena in jubilation.


Trivia

Ralph Sampson stands as the most decorated Cavalier in the history of the program. In the early Eighties Sampson dominated at the college level and won the Naismith Player of the Year Award, as well as the Adolph Rupp Trophy and the Oscar Robertson Trophy, three times each in 1981, 1982, and 1983. He also was the winner of the John R. Wooden Award twice, in 1982 and 1983. Seven former Cavaliers have had their numbers retired: Jeff Lamp, Buzzy Wilkinson, Bryant Stith, Barry Parkhill, Wally Walker, Sean Singletary, and Ralph Sampson.
