  • The Virginia Cavaliers men's basketball team is the intercollegiate men's basketball program representing the University of Virginia. The school competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Virginia has won one , two National Invitation Tournaments, and three ACC Tournament titles. The team is coached by Tony Bennett and plays home games at the on-campus John Paul Jones Arena which opened in 2006. They have been called the Cavaliers since 1923, predating the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA by 47 years. A consistent winner in the early years of college basketball under the tutelage of Pop Lannigan (254–95 from 1905 to 1929), the Cavalier program lay mostly dormant between 1930 and 1975 before Terry Holland arrived to win their first ACC Championship and earn their first NCAA Tournament appearance in just his second year. The program has since won nine ACC season titles, third-best all-time. In the 18-game era (2012–2019) of ACC play Virginia had four of the five teams to go 16–2 or better. UVA was also the only ACC program to finish a season 17–1 (none went undefeated). Virginia won the NCAA Tournament Championship in 2019, has been to the three times, and won the last third-place game ever played at the event in 1981. UVA is one of only two programs (with Kentucky) to have earned a No. 1 seed in all four regions of the NCAA Tournament. The Cavaliers have been ranked in the Top 5 of the AP Poll a total of 96 times in the past four decades, ranking the program 9th since 1980. As of 2019, Virginia is one of nine college basketball programs authorized to wear gold tabs on their basketball uniforms to acknowledge winning a national title while outfitted by the Nike brand.
