ACC Network announces UVA hoops documentary


ACC Network has put together a one-hour documentary on UVA basketball’s path to the 2019 national championship.

Unbelievable: Virginia’s Improbable Path To A Title, will air this fall exclusively on ACC Network (ACCN), the new, 24/7 national platform launching on Thursday, Aug. 22.

“Coach Bennett and his team did what many thought was unthinkable – rebounding from a devastating loss to capturing a series of dramatic tournament wins on the game’s biggest stage. We are delighted to tell this inspiring story on ACCN, and are thankful for Virginia’s generosity in letting us do so,” said Stacie McCollum, senior director of programming and acquisitions at ACC Network.

Seems to be the thing to watch after you’ve read Team of Destiny: Inside Virginia Basketball’s Run to the 2019 National Championship, by Jerry Ratcliffe and Chris Graham.

“This is a hoops story you will love!” ESPN college basketball commentator Dick Vitale said of the book. “Jerry and Chris capture the sensational and dramatic championship journey by Tony Bennett and his tenacious Cavalier team. UVA was Awesome Baby, and so is this book!”
