The Cavaliers (49-9) went 4-0 this weekend to win the ACC tournament for the third time. They open against Navy (33-23-1) on Friday afternoon in the double-elimination format. East Carolina (39-19) and St. John’s (35-20) meet in the other game.
A year ago, Virginia advanced through the regional round and hosted a super regional, seeking a second consecutive trip to Omaha and the College World Series. Instead, the Cavaliers lost in three games to Oklahoma and watched a Sooners dogpile celebration on Davenport Field.
“That image of the Oklahoma dogpile, of not making it (to Omaha), that still resonates in everybody’s head,” said pitcher Tyler Wilson (7-0).
