Head coach Tony Bennett will go down in history as the coach who led the Virginia Cavaliers to their only national championship. However, since taking the crown in 2019, Virginia has become a caricature of itself. Bennett has always emphasized defense, but these days, it has reached an absurd level. UVA has no offense to speak of this year while its defense was among the best in the nation. The Cavaliers are hard on the eyes and did not provide consistent value on the board in 2023-24.

After coming off their epic national championship run in the 2018-19 season, the Virginia Cavaliers have had a hard time since then. Virginia has not been nearly as good since that dream season.

Fans of the Virginia Cavaliers will always be grateful for their 2019 national championship. But as the years fade, UVA fans are becoming increasingly impatient with coach Tony Bennett's defense-only approach. In like manner, gamblers are running out of patience with the lack of profits on the board. Virginia has always been a one-dimensional and defensive-oriented team under Bennett. And it is not always pretty to watch. It was okay when the Cavaliers won the national championship. These days, the style is ripped as a liability.

Virginia encountered an almost unprecedented level of roster turnover last offseason, with seven scholarship players exiting the program due to graduation, the NBA Draft, or the transfer portal, and eight new scholarship players coming in, four from the portal and four freshmen. But by far, the biggest event of the offseason was the return of Reece Beekman, who declared for the NBA Draft, participated in the Draft Combine and a few private workouts with NBA teams, but ultimately decided to return to Virginia for his senior season.

Virginia was in the upper quarter of the ACC but is not seen as a serious national contender.
