  • Wednesday will mark the first of three meetings against ODU in 2024. The Cavaliers will host the Monarchs again on April 2nd and play at Harbor Park in Norfolk on April 16. It would mark the first time ever the two schools have played three times in one season.
  • Dating back to the 2022 season, Virginia has won its last 32 games against non-conference opponents in the regular season. UVA went 25-0 against non-ACC foes in the regular season in 2023 and won its last four non-conference games in the 2022 regular season.
  • The Cavaliers have won 19-straight games in the month of February going back to 2022.
  • ODU was the last non-ACC team to win at Disharoon Park on April 12, 2022. Since then, the Cavaliers have rattled off 23-straight home wins against non-conference foes in the regular season.
  • Virginia is one of 56 teams in the country to come out of opening weekend without a loss. Of the 14 teams in the ACC, 10 did not suffer a defeat.
  • The Cavaliers scored 42 runs in three games against Hofstra over the weekend. The 42 runs are the most in the first three games of season in the Brian O’Connor era (2004-present) and the most by a UVA team since 1911.
  • Virginia is averaging 14.0 runs per game, the 13th highest in the country and the third-best in the ACC.


  • Separated by 163 miles, Virginia and ODU will square off for the 70th time in an all-time series that was first played in 1965.
  • Virginia has won seven of the last eight meetings, including both games of the 2021 Columbia Regional.

  • Under Brian O’Connor, UVA has won 12 of 20 matchups.
  • Last year’s meeting with ODU was the second matchup of the 2023 season that featured two 20-win teams. Thanks to a seven-run second inning, UVA came away with an 8-1 victory and tied the best start in program history through 25 games (23-2).


  • Righthander Cullen McKay will get the start on Wednesday, his fourth of his career. He tossed one scoreless inning in game two against Hofstra.
  • He amassed 26 strikeouts in 16.2 innings pitched last season as a true freshman.
  • In his three combined starts in 2023, he totaled seven innings, allowed two earned runs and struck out eight batters.


  • Virginia led the country in doubles last season and compiled 13 in three games against Hofstra, including seven in the finale on Sunday. The 13 doubles are the seventh-most in the country and the most of any ACC team.
  • Reliever Aidan Teel saved both the series opener and series finale against Hofstra. He tied for second in the country in saves and one of seven players with multiple saves after opening weekend.


  • Freshman Henry Ford made a big splash in first weekend of college baseball. He put forth multi-hit efforts in each of his first three games, blasted two homers and drove in six runs. His three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth of the series finale proved to be the difference in the game.

  • Ford is one of 11 freshmen nationally to hit multiple home runs this season in his first three games.
  • Leadoff man Griff O’Ferrall started his 2024 season off with a bang, homering on the fifth pitch of the season. His only other home run prior to that point was a lead-off long ball against Duke in game two of the 2023 Super Regional.

  • O’Ferrall homered for the second-straight game with a big fly in the third inning of Saturday’s series clincher against Hofstra, doubling his career home run total in the first two games of the 2024 season.
  • Luke Hanson scored five times in game two, matching a single-game UVA record. He reached base five times – two walks, two hit by pitches and his first career home run in the third inning.
  • Graduate transfer Bobby Whalen put forth a career effort in his first Cavalier start on Saturday by going 4-for-4 with two doubles, six RBI and a run scored. It was the fourth four-hit game of his career and the six RBI established a new career-high.
