Saturday marks only the second all-time meeting between the Cavaliers and Knights, a series that began in 2006 during Bellarmine’s second season at the NCAA Division I level.

O’Reilly’s 25 assists and 45 points lead Virginia, while Mark Cockerton is tied for the nation’s lead with Steve Mock of Cornell with 38 goals. White and Rob Emery round out UVa’s top scorers with 19 and 17 goals, respectively. Rhody Heller has started the last five games in the cage and is posting a 12.57 goals against average and saving 47.9 percent of shots against him.
Bellarmine head coach Kevin Burns is in his second season leading the Knights and has turned around a program that was 4-8 in his initial campaign in 2012. Bellarmine University, located in Louisville, Ky., is only Division I in men’s lacrosse, with the rest of its sports competing at the Division II level. The Knights are coming off of back-to-back double overtime losses, including one at the nation’s current No. 1 team, the Denver Pioneers, two weeks ago. Bellarmine’s goalie Dillon Ward leads the nation in save percentage, stopping 68.8 percent of shots against him and is posting a 6.98 goals against average. Cameron Gardner leads the Knights with 24 goals and 27 points. Michael Ward and Lance Robinson round out the top scorers with 18 and 16 goals respectively.
