As we reported on Monday, former Cavaliers bonded together last weekend to hold an NBA 2K tournament to raise money to help hourly workers who were furloughed during the COVID-19 crisis. In this great piece from CBS19’s Preston Willett, he speaks to Ms. Kathy and Ms, Cathy, two of the beloved workers that inspired the outpouring. He also chats with Justin Anderson, who co-created the tournament with Ty Jerome. This is a MUST SEE story!!! And remember, you can still make a donation and help the cause here

In honor of #GivingTuesday, @UVASAExeperience looked back at some of the many, many, many community engagement projects that the Cavaliers took part in this year. Give the account a follow to see even more.



As of 5:30 a.m. today, live sports have returned to ESPN! Today is opening day for the Korean Baseball League (KBO). The league is playing games in fan-less stadiums (though don’t worry, the cheerleaders are still there). The first game broadcast was between the Dosan Bears and the LG Twins, the latter being the team of @UVABaseball alum Tyler Wilson. His wife, @UVAWomensHoops alumna and current ACC Network and ESPN women’s basketball analyst Chelsea Shine made an appearance on the broadcast. Wilson chatted remotely with the ACC Network this week about the return of baseball. Watch the interview below.
