Both teams are 2-2 in their last four games. Virginia averages 13.6 goals per game while Old Dominion scores 11.3.

Senior Liza Blue (Butler, Md.) scored four goals at Duke, her fifth four-goal game of the year and her third-straight game with at least a hat trick. Blue now leads the team in goals with 29, ranking sixth in the ACC and 15th in the nation. She has scored a goal in each game this season and, going back to last year, has scored a goal in 16-straight games. Blue's 2.90 goal-per-game average ranks fourth in the ACC and 25th in the nation.
At Duke, Swan snapped an 11-game goal-scoring streak that had extended back into last season's NCAA Tournament. Swan had two assists against the Blue Devils, extending her points streak to 12 games. Swan is ninth in the ACC and 37th in the nation in points per game, averaging 3.90. Swan also had five draw controls against Duke.
