Before Saturday’s match, the Cavaliers will honor their three seniors, Tobi Farrar, Rachel Gray and Jessica O’Shoney, who will play at Mem Gym for the final time in their UVa careers.

The Cavaliers (8-18, 2-13 ACC) went 1-1 last weekend, coming from behind to defeat Georgia Tech, 3-2, on Nov. 2 before falling to Clemson, 3-1, on Nov. 3 in Charlottesville.

UVa hit a season-high .390 in the five-set win over Georgia Tech. Freshman Kayla Sears hit .545 with 20 kills, while O’Shoney had a career-high 19 kills and four blocks. Junior Emily Rottman tallied a career-high 40 digs in the four-set loss to Clemson, the fourth-most in a single match in Virginia history.

The Terps are 14-13 on the season and 5-10 in ACC play after defeating Duke, 3-2, and Wake Forest, 3-1, last weekend.

Maryland leads the all-time series, 36-21, including a 3-1 win on Sept. 30 in College Park, Md.

The Eagles come into the weekend with a 10-17 record (4-11 ACC) and have lost eight matches in a row, including to Duke, 3-2, and Wake Forest, 3-1, last weekend.

Virginia leads the all-time matchup, 12-3, but BC won the last meeting, 3-0, on Sept. 27 in Chestnut Hill, Mass.
