Hoos on the Move
Last week, we shared that @UVAMensHoops alum Braxton Key signed a 10-day contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. Now you can listen to the man himself talk about his call up from the G-League. And watch his debut below.
Braxton Key makes his NBA debut for the Philadelphia 76ers, and immediately throws a full-court dime.

Perhaps this one should be called Look Hoos Writing. We like to bring you news stories about some of our behind-the-scenes staff in the athletics department, so check out this feature from CoSIDA’s 360 magazine in which UVA assistant director of athletic communications Melissa Dudek talks about writing outside of traditional job duties (she has published two novels and is currently working on her third in addition to her duties covering multiple sports at UVA). Trust us, you have definitely read her work from her day job, probably without knowing it.
