    Streaking The Lawn: COMMITMENT: Virginia Basketball rounds out 2020 class with Jabri Abdur-Rahim

    Tony Bennett finished out the class of 2020 Wednesday night with the commitment of national top-50 prospect Jabri Abdur-Rahim.

    Abdur-Rahim is the son of former NBA All-Star--and current president of the NBA G League--Shareef Abdur-Rahim. The 6-foot-7 wing is a consensus four-star with 247 Sports, Rivals, and ESPN. Each of the three major services has him ranked in the top 100 recruits nationally: ESPN the highest at #28, Rivals at #41, and 61st in 247's rankings (but 44th overall in the 247 Composite).

    A product of New Jersey's Blair Academy, Abdur-Rahim picked UVA over Michigan and more than 30 other offers, including Arizona, Florida, Kansas, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan State, Texas, USC, and Villanova.

    Bleacher Report: Shareef Abdur-Rahim's 4-Star Son Jabri Commits to UVA Basketball

    Virginia continues to fill its 2020 class with the addition of Jabri Abdur-Rahim, who announced his decision on Twitter Wednesday:

    "I felt most comfortable with the staff and I felt they would best prepare me to win on the college level and achieve my ultimate goal of playing in the NBA," he said, per Jeff Borzello of ESPN.

    The small forward is the son of former NBA star Shareef Abdur-Rahim, but he is a top prospect in his own right. Jabri is considered a 4-star talent, rated the No. 11 player in the country at his position and the No.

    Streaking The Lawn: NBA Update: Jack Salt scores as Ty Jerome, De'Andre Hunter, and Kyle Guy ink deals

    The NBA Summer League is underway, and five former Virginia players have seen action.

    Jack Salt saw seven minutes of action with the Phoenix Suns and put back an offensive board for two points. London Perrantes is playing with the New Orleans Pelicans and had six points, seven assists, and four steals in his last outing on Saturday. Devon Hall has been playing with the Oklahoma City Thunder -- who drafted him last year -- and is hoping to earn a spot on the roster.

    Kyle Guy, who has been killing it with the Sacramento Kings, had a big week as he signed a two-way contract.

    Streaking The Lawn: It has been 3 months since the National Championship. Let's watch highlights!

    Three months ago, the Virginia Cavaliers took home the program's first NCAA title in men's basketball with an 85-77 overtime victory over Texas Tech. The dramatic win capped off a six-game stretch that featured a second-half comeback to avoid utter disaster (Gardner-Webb), a comfortable win (Oklahoma), a defensive slug-fest (Oregon), an epic shootout (Purdue), and a clutch performance at the free throw line (Auburn).

    It was the last time we got to see the Big Three of De'Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome, and Kyle Guy play together, and it sent fifth year big man Jack Salt out with a title.

    Streaking The Lawn: Beta Bridge gets a fresh coat of Virginia Basketball love

    The confetti has settled. Students have gone their separate ways as Final Exercises gave way to Reunions, which gave way to the dog days of summer. The NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP trophies are touring the country bringing joy in the morning to alumni and fans everywhere. But for some super fans, there is no such thing as the offseason.

    Frances Newman, Rachael Inlow, Davida Rimm-Kaufman, and Clare Inlow are four such super fans, who know that as the Virginia Cavaliers men's basketball program loses five players--one to graduation, three to the NBA Draft, and one to the transfer portal--the school also gains five new players, and that preparations for the 2019-2020 season have already started.

    Streaking The Lawn: State of the Program: Baseball

    For the second time since the 2003 season, the UVA baseball team missed out on the NCAA Regionals. While missing only two NCAA Tournaments in 16 years is a very rare feat, missing two in a row is at the very least worth an eye raise in Charlottesville. The last two seasons have been disappointing, but there's also very good explanations for both. The 2018 team was ravaged by injuries while the 2019 team was very young.

    It should be somewhat reassuring that, since the injuries came before the youth, that 2020 will be a different story. For all those that are calling for changes in the coaching staff, keep in mind that UVA is only five years removed from winning the College World Series and three years removed from winning 43 games.

    Streaking The Lawn: Vote for THE PLAY for the ESPYS 'Best Play'

    We all know it was the best play of the year, so now it's time to make it official. The dramatic Kihei Clark to Mamadi Diakite pass in the 2019 Elite Eight is up for an ESPY for the Best Play, and it's up to you to help it win!

    The Hoos were down 70-68 to the Purdue Boilermakers with a 5.9 seconds remaining and Ty Jerome at the line with one more free throw to shoot. His second attempt went off the front of the rim, and Diakite managed to get a hand on it for a tip into the backcourt.

    Streaking The Lawn: How De'Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy fit in their new NBA homes

    Two of Tony Bennett's big three-forward De'Andre Hunter and point guard Ty Jerome-were selected in the first round of the 2019 NBA draft on Thursday night. The duo is the 'Hoos first ever pair of first-round picks in the same draft (big year for making history, huh) and Hunter went as the highest pick in Virginia history behind the legend himself, Ralph Sampson. The third star of this year's national championship team, Kyle Guy, went late in the second round, marking the first time in the two-round era of the draft that UVA has had three players selected.

    Streaking The Lawn: Ty Jerome drafted No. 24 overall by the Phoenix Suns

    Virginia's Ty Jerome was the second Cavalier to hear their name called in the 2019 NBA Draft, getting picked No. 24 overall by the Phoenix Suns, via a trade with the Boston Celtics. He joins former teammate De'Andre Hunter as the first UVA duo to go in the first round of the same draft after Hunter went No. 4 overall to the Atlanta Hawks.

    Jerome was a steady hand for the Hoos during his time in Charlottesville, playing an instrumental role in winning Virginia's first National Championship in men's basketball. He averaged 13.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game his final season with Virginia while shooting 44% from the field and 40% from three.

    Streaking The Lawn: De'Andre Hunter rocking a FIRE suit for the NBA Draft

    When you're going to go as a lottery pick in the NBA Draft, you dress the part. Virginia player De'Andre Hunter did exactly that, outfitting himself in a sparkly suit jacket over black shirt and tie.

    Hunter partnered with JC Penney for his draft look, and the pair customized a J. Ferrar suit with a personalized lining.

    Before the draft, Hunter was stoked to debut the look. "We customized a pretty cool suit, a JF [J.Ferrar] suit," Hunter told Emily Caron for a Sport Illustrated piece. "I don't want to give too much away but I feel like it's a nice suit and we did a pretty good job getting at my style.

    Streaking The Lawn: 2019 NBA Draft Profile: De'Andre Hunter ready to make his mark

    As we start counting down the hours until the 2019 NBA Draft in New York, three Virginia Cavaliers -- Ty Jerome, Kyle Guy, and De'Andre Hunter -- are hoping to hear their names called. Hunter is projected as a lottery pick, making him the first Virginia player drafted in the lottery since Bryant Stith in 1992 (13th overall). The only Cavalier players taken higher than that were Wally Walker (No. 5 in 1976), Ralph (No. 1 overall in 1983), and Olden Polynice (No. 8 in 1987).

    De'Andre Hunter is universally projected to go in the top-10, and possibly in the top-5.

    Streaking The Lawn: Where will UVA players go in the NBA Draft?

    With the NBA draft almost upon us, three UVA stars hope to hear their names called. Last month, we looked at the mock drafts after the NBA lottery was determined in order to predict the futures of De'Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome, and Kyle Guy.

    After the blockbuster trade of Anthony Davis from New Orleans to the Lakers for the No. 4 pick, there was a whole new round of NBA Mock Drafts. This is particularly important for projecting where De'Andre Hunter will end up since he was slotting to go in that general area of the draft.

    Streaking The Lawn: 2019 NBA Draft Profile: Ty Jerome is a hot shooter and savvy player

    The University of Virginia will likely have two players drafted in the first round of tonight's 2019 NBA Draft. De'Andre Hunter is a lock to be a lottery pick, but Virginia fans will most likely also hear Ty Jerome's name called within the first 30 picks. Where Hunter was the most talented player in the program, and teammate Kyle Guy was the face of the Cavaliers, Jerome was the pivotal third piece that kept things running behind the scenes.

    In Virginia's National Championship run, Jerome was arguably the most important player for the Cavaliers. He averaged 16.9 points, six assists, 5.
