Virginia isn't a school casual fans often associate with the NBA draft. And with fair reason. Not that UVA has been a total stranger to the event, there are a number of schools even at the power-conference level with a much smaller historical participation in the event than UVA has.

It's been a little more than two months since Virginia won the national championship. It's amazing to sit back and think about how the team's tournament run unfolded, especially the last three games. It's still unbelievable to think that so many things had to go right for the Wahoos to win the title, and they did. For the first time, it felt like Virginia was the one getting the breaks.
