  • This was the first ACC Freshman of the Week honor for a Cavalier since Dominique Toussaint earned the accolade on Feb. 6, 2017

  • Kornegay-Lucas’ 31-point game against Old Dominion makes her just the second-ever UVA freshman to have a 30-point game. The last freshman to do so was Dawn Staley, who did it twice, putting up 37 against Wake Forest and 34 against Maryland in her rookie campaign, but both of those games came in her second semester. Kornegay-Lucas’ 30-point performance was in her sixth collegiate game
  • Kornegay-Lucas is also the first player in program history to come off the bench to score 30 points in a game
  • After shooting a season-best 80.0 percent from the free throw line against Old Dominion (16-of-20), Virginia has moved up to second in the ACC in free throw shooting percentage at 75.0 percent

  • Willoughby is ninth in the conference in points per game (16.2) and 12th in rebounding (8.0)

  • UVA downed Old Dominion, 56-53, in overtime on Sunday
  • Freshman guard Kylie Kornegay-Lucas had a breakout performance, scoring 31 points, going 10-of-18 from the field and 10-of-11 from the free throw line. Lucas also logged her first career double-double by grabbing a game-high 12 rebounds. Old Dominion’s Victoria Morris scored 26 points, going 8-of-18 from three-point range
  • Old Dominion led by 11 points in the third quarter and held a five-point lead heading into the final minute of play, but the Cavaliers battled back, with Jocelyn Willoughby hitting a game-tying three with 10.8 seconds remaining in regulation. In overtime, Virginia held a 54-50 lead with 11 seconds remaining, but a three-pointer from Morris cut the lead to one. After an immediate foul, Virginia made one of two free throws to go up 55-53, before Kornegay-Lucas stole the ensuing inbound pass with 3.0 seconds remaining to give possession back to UVA and seal the victory
