We're certainly going to need them again with the schedule we'll face moving forward."
Virginia returns 13 letterwinners, including All-ACC first team selection Malcolm Brogdon (Atlanta, Ga.), from last season's team that captured both the ACC regular season and tournament titles en route to a school-record tying 30 victories and its first trip to the NCAA Sweet 16 since 1995. The letterwinners will be joined by redshirt freshman Devon Hall (Virginia Beach, Va.) and freshmen Jack Salt (Auckland, New Zealand), B.J. Stith (Lawrenceville, Va.) and Isaiah Wilkins (Lilburn, Ga.).
