HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - The 2020 NCAA men's basketball tournament is canceled, and there's nothing we can do to bring it back. But, we can bring back some of the greatest games in the history of March Madness.

This weekend, News 3 (CBS) will air six NCAA tournament classics. Among the group: UVA's thrilling overtime victory vs. Texas Tech to win the 2019 NCAA title. Additionally, former Virginia stars Kyle Guy, Ty Jerome and De’Andre Hunter will live tweet during the rebroadcast.

Guy, Jerome and Hunter will live tweet their personal thoughts and comments about the championship win from the Virginia men’s basketball twitter account @UVAMensHoops. The trio led the Cavaliers to their first NCAA men’s basketball championship and 35-3 overall record during the 2018-19 season. Guy was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2019 NCAA Final Four and was joined on the all-tournament team by Hunter and Jerome.

Hunter, Jerome and Guy were each selected in the 2019 NBA Draft. Hunter was selected fourth overall, Jerome was picked 24th and Guy was picked 55th. Hunter (Atlanta), Jerome (Phoenix) and Guy (Sacramento) played in the NBA during the 2019-20 season.
