Hundreds of basketball professionals and enthusiasts will fill the theater for a night of behind-the-scenes tournament stories and inside tips on how things are shaping up for March Madness 2020. Panelists will include UVA President Jim Ryan, basketball fan and novelist John Grisham, Macon “The Squid” Gunter, Chief Statistician for the UVA Sports Network, and Caroline Darney of Streaking the Lawn.
