Virginia coach Tony Bennett says just like his team didn't obsess over losing to 16th-seeded UMBC in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament, the Cavaliers won't obsess over winning the national championship this past season.
Bennett says when his team became the first to lose in the NCAA Tournament as a No. 1 seed he didn't try to "sweep it under the rug." Instead he says his team addressed it and learned from it.
Now, as champions, he says they have enjoyed the success of winning it all but won't obsess over it and allow it to impact the upcoming season which he expects will be filled with growing pains after losing three players to the NBA draft.
Bennett says "you don't overdue either, and we are thankful for both extremes."
