There's been a lot of O talk, but gone from the Championship team are 4


very good players even if you take away their O. Hunter, Key, Mamadi, and Salt. That group was exceptional at D, very good at rebounding (esp Key), screening, and just bringing intangibles. Hunter was the only elite scorer of that group, but I'm convinced it's his D and the D and non-offensive production of the other players that we miss so much. Even looking at the end of last season during the winning streak, UVA struggled to score but won all those games. Mamadi and Key fit Tony's philosophy perfectly and this team is missing guys that can produce in the same way. As we look to the future I'm optimistic about guys like McCoy and Shedrick filling those gaps.
