This year UVA men’s basketball made history. Close to midnight on April 8th, UVA beat Texas Tech in an overtime win of 85-77. The final buzzer announced that they had officially won their first national championship.
The story of UVA men’s basketball NCAA win is a story about bringing together a community.
It’s the story of how head coach Tony Bennett brought the team together after a devastating first round loss in the tournament a year ago.
It’s the story of how the team brought a city together, with all of Charlottesville watching and waiting to see if UVA would pull through.
It’s the story of how that win brought the local businesses together. When the final buzzer sounded and Blue Ridge Graphics got to work printing t-shirts through the night, we didn’t do it alone. Without prompting, local suppliers came to help print, catch, and box t-shirts all night. Why? Because basketball brought us together.
And now, over ten thousand championship shirts will continue to bring people together. Every time you run into someone else wearing the iconic orange and blue UVA National Champions you’ll have a common bond, an instant fellowship brought on by basketball and t-shirts.
Because every t-shirt tells a story.
