The Virginia Cavaliers are your 2018-19 NCAA Men's Basketball National Champions.

The Hoos defeated the Texas Tech Red Raiders in overtime in what ended up being one of the best championship games in recent memory. 

Philadelphia native De'Andre Hunter led the scored a game-high 27 points for Virginia, while guard Kyle Guy dropped 24 on his way to being named tournament MVP.

Virginia's run is all the more meaningful for the program, as it comes just a year removed from being the first 1-seed in tournament history to be eliminated by a 16-seed. 

Congrats to the Cavaliers!
