Virginia earns No. 4 seed, to play Furman in opening round of NCAA Tournament
The Cavaliers will face the Paladins in Orlando on Thursday.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - The Virginia men’s basketball team earned a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament Sunday and will face 13-seed Furman in the First Round on Thursday in Orlando, Florida.
The Cavaliers fell to Duke in Saturday’s ACC Tournament Championship in Greensboro, but at 25-7 overall, they did enough to earn a 4 seed in the Big Dance.
Furman won the SoCon Championship, beating Chattanooga in the finals last Monday.
The Paladins are 27-7 and lost their only other matchup against an ACC team, 92-73 at NC State in December.
The winner of Virginia and Furman will face the winner of San Diego State and Charleston on Saturday in Orlando.
No. 1 overall seed Alabama likely awaits whoever wins that matchup in the Sweet 16 in Louisville.
