CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Frankie Badocchi's 'One Shining Moment' will go down as his lasting image as a member of the Virginia men's basketball program.
The school announced Monday afternoon that because of unspecified personal reasons, Badocchi is leaving the UVA men's basketball program. Badocchi will remain enrolled at Viginia and complete his undergraduate degree.
Badocchi may be best remembered for his performance on the keyboard of 'One Shining Moment' at UVA's celebration at Scott Stadium in April, the weekend after the Wahoos won the first NCAA championship in program history:
