Just in time for March Madness – but perhaps just a few hours late to capture the elation of Thursday night’s near-miraculous men’s basketball victory over Louisville – a new batch of University of Virginia-themed emojis is now available.
The 30 new images are larger and more expressive than what had been available before. Half feature the CavMan mascot, rounded out with other images and symbols that celebrate Cavalier athletics.
“We’re really excited to announce our partnership with MyWeb and the release of a new set of CavMan emoji stickers,” Todd Goodale, senior associate athletics director, said. “These stickers will definitely add a lot of fun to messages our fans send to each other as they follow the ’Hoos throughout March Madness.”
Most of the emojis are not sport-specific, but they will no doubt get a lot of play in social media as the No. 1-ranked Cavalier men’s basketball team heads into the postseason. The annual Atlantic Coast Conference tournament begins next week in Brooklyn, New York, with top-seeded UVA playing a quarterfinal game at noon on Thursday. The field for the 2018 NCAA Tournament will be unveiled March 11. The app is available for $1.99.
