Most of the praise goes to the most visible of those participants. In Virginia’s case, all signs point to Coach Tony Bennett and players like Kyle Guy or De’Andre Hunter. However, there is also a lot of work behind the scenes that contributes to the quality of basketball that Cavalier fans have become accustomed to.
