December 20, 1998


The Cavaliers return to action following a break during exam week. Virginia is on a two-game win streak with wins over Wake Forest (65-45) and Towson (102-44). The average margin of victory in the last two games is 39.0 points.

The Cavaliers have played the last two games without 5th-year guard Monick Foote who is side-lined with a pulled right hamstring. Her status is questionable for Monday’s game with Radford but Foote is hoping to return to action next week in the tournament.

DeMya Walker leads the team in scoring (16.9 ppg) and rebounding (8.1 rpg) and Monick Foote is the team’s second leading scorer ( 13.2 ppg) while Lesley Brown ranks third in scoring (12.6 ppg) and second in rebounding (6.0 rpg).

The Cavaliers hold an all-time record of 128-27 in the month of December for a winning percentage of 82.6 percent.
