Tony Bennett compares Virginia crowd to Taylor Swift concert
Virginia dominated Syracuse on Saturday to win its first ACC championship in 33 years. The Cavaliers cruised their way to a 75-56 victory with the help of an enthusiastic crowd that was deafening at times. How loud were the fans? Virginia head coach Tony Bennett said he felt like he was at a Taylor Swift concert.
“That crowd defensively, it was special how intense it was in there and the passion you got from it,” Bennett said, via CSNWashington.com. “The last time I heard it that loud I was at the Taylor Swift concert.”
Bennett said he attended a Taylor Swift concert at John Paul Jones Arena before and was envious of the crowd noise.
“I sat there and there’s, you know, 14,000 teenage girls screaming and i remember sitting there like, ‘I wonder if we can get it like this for a game,'” he said. “And I’ll tell you something it either rivaled it or surpassed it. Sorry, Taylor. It was that good.”
Imagine trying to play basketball in front of this?
No wonder Syracuse got waxed.
