After winning the ACC regular season title and the ACC Tournament title, the Virginia men's basketball team will be a No. 1 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
UVa clinched the top seed in the East region after wrapping up its first ACC Tournament title since 1976 on Sunday, beating Duke 72-63 on Sunday. The 'Hoos improved to 28-6 overall on the season and 19-2 against conference opponents with the win.
The Cavaliers will meet 16th-seeded Coastal Carolina in their first matchup on Friday in Raleigh. If UVa wins, they'll advance to play the winner of the 8-9 game between No. 8 Memphis and No. 9 George Washington.
This is Virginia's second NCAA Tournament appearance under 2014 ACC Coach of the Year Tony Bennett. The Cavaliers are 22-17 in 17 NCAA tournaments. UVa advanced to the NCAA Final Four in 1981 and 1984. It's the fourth time Virginia has been a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
