Did Virginia deserve to be in the national championship?

The Virginia Cavaliers completed their journey from chumps to champs, recovering from a loss to a 16-seed last year to win the national championship in this year's tournament. However, controversial calls in the Final Four against Auburn have some doubting whether UVA truly deserved the opportunity. Others have no questions about the Cavs' credentials because Kyle Guy still hit clutch free throws to earn the win. What do you think? 🏀

If we're being totally honest, Virginia might as well have shown up wearing sweatpants to the national championship because the school definitely didn't deserve to sit, or share the same court, with Texas Tech.

Not only did the Cavaliers get away with a blatant double dribble in the final seconds of the Final Four, but they also had a ridiculous foul call that gave them three free throws to eventually win the game. There is no way a foul like that gets called in the final seconds! Referees shouldn't be deciding games.

If it wasn't for fortunate whistles, Virginia would be sitting at home with the rest of us for the national title game. The 'Hoos didn't deserve to be there.

People need to let go of the Final Four. It's done. It's over.

Should there have been a double dribble called? Sure, but Auburn could've stepped up and played actual defense on the next possession instead of fouling Kyle Guy (and he was fouled). Not only that, Guy earned the win by knocking down three free throws that would've frozen any other player. He earned the win for his team by coming up clutch, not by luck.

Virginia deserved to be at—and win—the national championship!
