The Cavaliers have seven newcomers (six freshmen, one transfer) and boast the No. 12-ranked recruiting class in the country.
The Dukes ended 2012 with a 13-16 record and went 5-7 in the Colonial Athletic Association. James Madison returns five players who saw action in at least 25 matches last season. This will be the 48th meeting between the two schools with Virginia leading the series, 22-15, including a 3-2 win last year in Harrisonburg, Va.
The Herd finished 2012 with an 18-13 record, along with a 8-8 mark in Conference USA, but only lose one starter from last year's squad. The Cavaliers lead the all-time series, 4-1, including a 3-0 triumph in a 2011 tournament at Ohio.
The Grizzlies went 6-23 in 2012 with a 4-16 record in the Big Sky, and return five starters. This will be just the second meeting all-time between the two schools. UVa won the first encounter, 3-1, in a tournament in 1996 at Pittsburgh.
