UVa's offense under CTB always flows through the defense.

It's a phrase repeated ad nauseam in the last five years by CTB, JH, AM, AG, JA, MB, LP and others, but they repeat it because it's true.

In light of this, the return of a healthy IW this year cannot be understated. His defensive leadership will effect both ends of the floor, despite the fact that his offensive prowess is limited.

Yes, the offense needs to be tweaked and in some ways reimagined, but, just as Virginia is most properly measured by the sum of its parts and not by the individual's talent at specific skill positions, the offense is not easily measured, dissected, broken down, and evaluated apart from the defense. The Virginia offense and defense are intricately intertwined.

I can't wait to see IW on the court again at full strength. IMO, his final year will be something special to behold, and the team will benefit on both ends of the court as a result.
