Weekend Topic: Basketball

I took a quick video at the Clemson game today (the Hoos won in overtime, 85-81) to show you where you'll get to sit at basketball games if you come to UVa. Keep in mind that this video was taken at halftime and the game was early this afternoon. John Paul Jones arena is not always as quiet as this!

Entrance to sporting events is included in student activity fees, so there are no tickets to secure for sporting events. At basketball games, students sit in the section behind the team benches (the right side of the frame) and behind one of the baskets (opposite the camera). The band, cheerleaders, and dance team take up a good amount of the space behind that basket, too.

This little video shows Sean Singletary's (CLAS '08) number being added to the banner of retired numbers.
