The Virginia Cavaliers are obviously a good college basketball program. If there’s one gripe to be had about anything related to them, it’s about their offense. Not about how good it is, because it is good, but due to how methodical it can often be.
When you couple that style of offense with Virginia’s stingy defense, it can often lead to insanely low-scoring games. To be fair to Tony Bennett, his job is to win games, not entertain the masses.
Anyway, a season removed from being on the wrong side of history in the NCAA Tournament, the Cavaliers find themselves dancing in the Sweet 16. According to the team’s best player, a partial reason for this is their improved offense.
“I feel like as a team we’re really comfortable,” Virginia Cavaliers talent De’Andre Hunter said. “When we lock down on defense I feel like we can beat anyone in the country. We’re a lot better offensively than we’ve been in the past couple of years.”
The team has actually averaged its most points per game since Bennett took over the program (71.6).
