Article on WBB Team


Will be interesting to see how they blend all the new parts (16 total players, including five transfers). I would expect attendance to be much lower than pre-Covid-19 due to several factors. Many fans not happy with the way the women's basketball program has trended for over twenty years now. How many NCAA tournament games has UVA played in the last twenty years? How long has it been since they were competitive in the ACC? How long since they played competitive basketball? Heck they couldn't even field a team last year due to poor recruitment numbers--not enough players to offset injury losses. Add to that many in the fan base will still not be willing to attend in-person games due to the risk of Covid-19. I'm not, particularly since it appears UVA will allow people to eat in the stands and thus not wear masks. (I got the flu after the last UVA women's basketball game I went too and even though it was nasty, it is nothing compared to Covid-19). UVA's fan base in the past has had a huge number of people of retirement age and above. I expect many of them to opt out of this season.
CTT is going to have to prove that she can put a competitive product on the court for most fans to come back even w/o the Covid-19 issue. I feel bad for the players and hope they do well this year. Even a small number of fans is better than none for them. I have absolutely no expectations for this year's team. Too many new faces and no feel for what kind of team CTT wants to put on the floor.
