CHARLOTTESVILLE Virginia travels to No. 12/11 Duke Sunday for a televised showdown at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Tip-off is 12:30 p.m. The game will be televised on the ACC’s Regional Sports Network (Comcast SportsNet, Fox Sports South) with Mike Hogewood and Debbie Antonelli calling the action.
Additionally, live audio is available through V Pass and the game will air on the radio on WINA 1070 AM in the Charlottesville area with Jay James, Myron Ripley and Larry Johnson calling the game.
Virginia (20-7, 8-3 ACC) is receiving votes in both national polls and is on a two-game win streak. The Cavaliers earned their 20th win of the season with an 83-71 victory over Clemson Thursday night, and reached the 20-win milestone during the regular-season for the first time since the 1999-2000 season.
Sharne Zoll became the Atlantic Coast Conference’s all-time assists leader against the Tigers, breaking the 16-year-old record held by Dawn Staley (729; 1989-92). Heading into Sunday’s game, Zoll has dished out 731 assists and is averaging 6.0 per game.
Virginia leads the all-time series with Duke, 32-25, but has lost 13 straight in the series. The Cavaliers won during the 2000 season at home, but have not been victorious in Durham since Feb. 19, 1997 (86-56). Since then, UVa has lost eight-straight on the Blue Devils’ homecourt.
Monica Wright, a sophomore, leads the Cavaliers on both ends of the floor. She leads the team and ranks second in the ACC in scoring, averaging 17.1 points per game. The reigning ACC Rookie of the Year, Wright has been named the conference’s player of the week once this year and was also selected as a member of the Naismith Trophy preseason watch list.
Down low for Virginia, Lyndra Littles and Aisha Mohammed have emerged as one of the strongest frontcourts in the league. Littles ranks second on the team and sixth in the ACC in scoring (16.2 ppg), while Mohammed has registered 10 double-doubles on the year and nearly averages one (12.9 points, 9.1 rebounds per game).
Rounding out the Cavaliers’ starting lineup is sophomore Paulisha Kellum. While her reputation can be described as underrated, she recently exploded offensively at No. 4/4 Maryland on Feb. 8 for 23 points and averages 9.2 ppg.
Duke (20-7, 9-3 ACC) is led by Chante Black (13.4 points, 7.1 rebounds per game) and Abby Waner (10.9 points per game). Head coach Joanne P. McCallie is in her first season in Durham.
