The news is a disappointment for Virginia, as Tony Bennett's team capped off an impressive comeback over Syracuse in the quarterfinals on a game-winning shot from Reece Beekman.

Virginia, who entered the tournament as the conference's top overall seed, will likely return to action next week in Indianapolis when the 2021 NCAA Tournament begins. The Cavaliers are projected to be anywhere from a No. 4-No. 6 seed.
