On Saturday, the Virginia and Notre Dame women’s lacrosse teams came together to help bring awareness to relationship violence with the Yards For Yeardley and One Love campaigns. Here is a picture of the #UVAWLax team posted on the Yards for Yeardley Instagram account with the Cavaliers wearing #OneLove t-shirts before the Notre Dame game.
#UVAMBB point guard London Perrantes has been a key to the men’s basketball success in Charlottesville the last three seasons. Coming out ofÂ Crespi Carmelite High School in Encino, Calif., Perrantes was just the type of player that fit Tony Bennett’s system. The Los Angles Times recounts Perrantes’ journey to Charlottesville and how the junior has helped UVA to the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region and a trip to the Sweet 16 in Chicago this weekend.
#1v1 with Coach Soderberg
#UVAMBB first-year assistant coach Brad Soderberg has known Tony Bennett for close to 35 years. Whitelaw Reid of the Daily Progress details how far back that relationship goes (did you know he was once Bennett’s P.E. teacher?) in this Q&A.
In our (and much of the internet’s) favorite press clipping of the day, UVA alum Michelle Ruiz chats basketball in a way that only a writer for Vogue could in this profile of #UVAMBB head coach Tony Bennett.
