The University of Virginia is unveiling new Cavalier emojis just in time to cheer on the Wahoos in March Madness.
A range of orange-and-blue emojis are available to help fans express their devotion to UVA sports. Five different “Cavmen” range in expression from happy to sad to mad. The collection also features virtual “We are Number One” foam fingers in Wahoo orange and blue, the classic “V-Sabres” logo and a blue-colored Virginia map with an orange heart marking Charlottesville.
The new Cavalier emojis were developed through a partnership between UVA Athletics, University Communications and the Collegiate Licensing Company.
Cavalier fans can use the new emoticons to pump up their friends and cheer on the ’Hoos as the UVA men’s basketball team looks to make a deep run in the 2017 NCAA Tournament. The action starts Thursday at 12:40 p.m. with a first-round matchup against the University of North Carolina-Wilmington in Orlando, Florida. The Cavaliers are seeded fifth with a 22-10 record. UNC Wilmington is the No. 12 seed with a record of 29-5. Go Hoos!
