Fan Trolls Virginia Basketball With Perfect T-Shirt Reference to Iowa Football at March Madness Game


One basketball fan went viral Tuesday night for wearing a T-shirt that poked fun at two, well, not-so aesthetically pleasing college sports programs. The photo came from a First Four matchup between Virginia and Colorado State at UD Arena.

“Virginia basketball is like Iowa football,” the fan’s T-shirt read.

Translation: They can’t score.

Virginia lived up to its poor offensive reputation Tuesday night, scoring just 14 points in an ugly first half and losing 67–42 to the fellow No. 10 seed Rams.

The Cavaliers ranked 354th out of 363 NCAA Division I men’s basketball teams in scoring this season, averaging 63.6 points per game.

In 2023, the Hawkeyes ranked 129th out of 130 NCAA Division I football teams, scoring 15.4 points per contest. Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz was dismissed from his role after the team failed to average 25 points per game, a provision in his contract for his two-year rolling contract to be reactivated.

Virginia has now lost in the opening round of the NCAA tournament in four of its last five appearances—all to double-digit seeds. The only year the Cavaliers advanced past the first round was 2019 when they won the national championship.
