I like to remind each time this comes up. There was the beginning of

a notable trend away from pure sides motion this season anyway so yes I suspect the offense will begin to look different in the years ahead.

With that said, UVA has always tailored offense to fit player strengths. I'll give you two or three examples:

~ Mike Scott mid post area jumpers haven't really seen that much otherwise. Plus, UVA switched him to come off screens instead of only setting them at one point in his senior season because teams were tagging him.

~ Joe Harris ran a lot of 'box split' where he came off elevator screen. UVA ran it some with Brogdon, but not nearly as much. Instead, ran him off option single screens either direction more often.

~ Anthony Gill would reverse the ball into on-ball screen actions more than other posts in the high post area.

In other words, as you mentioned, UVA tailors its offense to the player strengths a lot.
