New-look Virginia back to work after winning NCAA title

Tony Bennett's first offseason as a national champion coach has come with benefits on the recruiting trail. His first season at Virginia after winning the title, however, will bring challenges.

Five players who helped Virginia beat Texas Tech to capture the first basketball title in school history are gone, and that's four more than expected. Center Jack Salt graduated, and guards De'Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy declared for the NBA draft. Seldom-used Marco Anthony transferred.

Recruiting was already well underway before the Cavaliers won it all, but Bennett said Wednesday the result "certainly can't hurt and I think it has helped. It validates a lot of good stuff that's happened in the past."
