Scoring continues to be an issue for UVa-Wise. The Cavaliers have scored just 46 points in their last five quarters of play, including 41 in the team's most recent loss to the University of Charleston. In the loss, UVa-Wise shot just 23.1 percent from the field and 8.3 percent from the 3-point line. The poor shooting was made even more frustrating by the team's ability to rebound the basketball. The Cavs picked up 21 offensive rebounds in the game which led to 65 field goal attempts; by contrast, the Golden Eagles attempted just 49 shots in the game as UVa-Wise grabbed 11 more offensive rebounds. Rebounding has been a strength for Elise Clyburn's team all season. Entering play Wednesday, UVa-Wise is winning the battle of the boards by 2.9 rebounds per game. Sophomore Cynita Webb leads the team and ranks fourth in the Mountain East Conference at 10.1 reobunds per game. The strong rebounding effort has also spurred the Cavs' defensive effort. Opponents are scoring 70.4 points per game against UVa-Wise while shooting just 39.6 percent from the floor. The scoring defense ranks second in the league while the field goal percentage defense is third in the conference. Junior point guard Adalmaryz Rivera - Gomez had one of the stronger offensive games of her career against Charleston when she and Webb led the team in scoring with 10 points each. Junior Alle Moore added a game-high 11 rebounds in the loss. UVa-Wise has never lost to West Virginia Wesleyan in women's basketball, the Cavs are 8-0 all-time against the Bobcats and won two meetings last year by an average margin of 13.5 points.

About UVa-Wise Fresh off of a thrilling 83-81 buzzer-beating victory on the road against West Virginia State University, the Cavalier men return to the David J. Prior Convocation Center to host the University of Charleston. A battle ensued inside the Walker Convocation Center on Wednesday night with a last second floater by sophomore forward Tajh Eason sealing the win for the Cavaliers, improving to 3-0 in conference play for the first time since the 2002-2003 season.
In search of its first league win of the season, Elise Clyburn's team will play its first MEC game inside the Prior Center after three conference games on the road to begin the season. Putting the ball in the basket has been an issue for UVa-Wise through the first six games. The Cavaliers are averaging a league worst 61.5 points per game while also ranking last in turnover margin at -7.67 per game. UVa-Wise is averaging 24.3 turnovers per game while shooting 34.3 percent from the field. The good news for UVa-Wise is that they are returning home. Clyburn's squad won its only home game of the season, 83-80 over No. 24 Lincoln Memorial University on Nov. 15. Getting to the free throw line has been a strength of a team. UVa-Wise has shot a league-high 160 free throws, including 44 in its win over LMU. Sophomore Cynita Webb continues to be a force on the interior for the team. The Virginia Beach, Va. native has 10 or more rebounds in five of her team's six games while having turned in a pair of double-doubles. Webb is shooting 50 percent from the field while adding 9.3 points per game. Freshman Hanna Oliver is the team's leading scorer behind 43.2 percent shooting from the 3-point line. Oliver averages 11.8 points per game and has made at least three 3-pointers in five of her first six collegiate games. Her 43.2 percent shooting from beyond the arc ranks fourth in the conference while her 19 made 3-pointers is second in the conference.
