The Cavaliers are coming off of an impressive 74-49 win over ACC foe NC State Friday night. Lyndra Littles led all players with 17 points, while Sharne Zoll dished out a season-high 12 assists. With the victory, Virginia improved its record to 5-1 in the conference for the first time since the 1999-00 season and, at 16-5, is off to its best start since 2004-05 when it began the year 17-5.

On the season, the Cavaliers are 11-4 against non-conference opponents. Morehead State has an overall record of 7-13 and a 5-7 mark in the Ohio Valley Conference. In their last outing, the Eagles fell to Eastern Illinois, 68-52, on Jan. 26.
