The AFP on WREL: Crunch time

AFP editor Chris Graham joins WREL-1450AM’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan” to talk Virginia sports.

The focus this week is on Virginia Tech basketball – which finds itself back on the NCAA Tournament bubble in what seems to be an annual rite of pre-March Madness talk. Can the Hokies afford a slip-up between now and Selection Sunday? Chris doesn’t think so.

UVa. basketball has a big week ahead of it – with sellout home games with Duke and Virginia Tech. What do the Cavs have left to play for? Chris says with a young team, Tony Bennett’s bunch is building for the future, and a win in either or both of their games this week could lay an important foundation for that future.

Team of Destiny: Inside Virginia Basketball’s Run to the 2019 National Championship, by Jerry Ratcliffe and Chris Graham, is available for $25.

The book, with additional reporting by Zach Pereles, Scott Ratcliffe and Scott German, will take you from the aftermath of the stunning first-round loss to UMBC in 2018, and how coach Tony Bennett and his team used that loss as the source of strength, through to the ACC regular-season championship, the run to the Final Four, and the thrilling overtime win over Texas Tech to win the 2019 national title, the first in school history.
