Virginia Hosts Morehead State Monday Night



Virginia steps out of Atlantic Coast Conference play for the final time when it hosts Morehead State Monday night at John Paul Jones Arena. Tip-off is 7 p.m., and live audio is available through V Pass. The game will also air on WINA 1070 AM with Jay James (play-by-play), Myron Ripley (color commentary) and Larry Johnson (statistics) calling the action.

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.

Monica Wright continues to lead a balanced Cavalier offense, averaging 17.4 points per game. In her last outing vs. the Wolfpack, the sophomore tallied 16 points, five rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks in a typical all-around performance.

Aisha Mohammed exhibited her dominance in the post against NC State, nearly notching her ninth double-double of the season with eight points and nine boards. The junior center recently broke the school record for rebounds in a game (21 at Florida State, Jan. 26).

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.

Chynna Bozeman leads Morehead State by averaging 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. Head coach Mike Bradbury (UT-Chattanooga ’93) is in his first year.

Up next for Virginia is a rematch with No. 5/5 Maryland in College Park on Friday, Feb. 8. Tip-off from Comcast Center is 7 p.m. and the game will be televised on the ACC’s Regional Sports Network.
