CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Virginia men's basketball program signed guard Marco Anthony (San Antonio, Texas) to a National Letter of Intent, head coach Tony Bennett announced Wednesday (Nov. 9). Anthony will join the Cavaliers for the 2017-18 season.

“Marco is a strong, physical and versatile guard who looks forward to attending the University of Virginia and competing in the ACC,” Bennett said. “Marco and his family value education and the degree he will earn from UVA."
