​The Virginia Cavaliers are fresh off their first-ever ​national championship victory, having ​taken down Texas Tech in overtime. Many expected the Cavs to lose some key players to the NBA Draft during the offseason, but that may not be the case after all. 


Point guard Ty Jerome posted a video to Instagram, showing highlights of the team's championship campaign. The interesting part comes in the comment section, where teammate DeAndre Hunter expressed interest in returning to Virginia for his senior season. Jerome responded saying, "@drehunter_ I'm doing whatever you do big bro." 

Could both of Virginia's stars be back to wreak havoc in the ACC for one more season? Hunter and Jerome were two of Virginia's best players and their return to the program would likely make the Cavs' favorites to win the NCAA Tournament once more. 


In 2018, Jerome averaged 13.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game, while shooting 39.9% from deep. He was one of Virginia's most important assets and was a leader for the team, alongside Hunter, who posted season averages of 15.2 points and 5.1 rebounds. 



The video was captioned, "This the  I wanna go out to ."


While Jerome's caption hinted that he would want to exit the program on top after a national title, it seems that he would be open to returning if Hunter so desired. That could be a major shakeup for the league, as both were projected to enter the NBA.
