MINNEAPOLIS, Mn. (WDBJ) -- The Virginia Cavaliers have caught their breath following the thrilling semifinal win over Auburn.

Now only Texas Tech stands in the way of a national championship. It's a moment the Cavaliers have dreamed of for a long, long time.

"We'd love to cut down the nets, said junior guard Ty Jerome. "I would probably be speechless if we're able to do it. I'm sure it would mean the world to me. It's what every kid hopes for and what we work so hard for, but like Coach said, it's the joy of competition."

"Both teams have probably envisioned it. Every player and coach on every team has envisioned it, I'm sure but it's important to realize that you don't get to skip the game and cut down the nets," junior guard Kyle Guy said, We've got to focus on what's in front of us. Just focus on we're in for a battle and we're excited."

If the Wahoos can get it done tomorrow night, it would be the 17th national championship for the ACC.
