The Virginia Cavaliers football team suffered another brutal road loss over the weekend, falling to Louisville, 28-21. In basketball news, Pierce detailed his top five backcourts in the ACC ahead of the 2019-20 season.
On Saturday, former UVA center Felicia Aiyeotan announced that she has been diagnosed with Marfan syndrome - a genetic disorder that affects various connective tissues - which will end her collegiate basketball career prematurely. The news came as a shock to the senior, who views the sport as life-altering: “I was introduced to basketball about nearly a decade ago and it gave me an environment where my height was a source of strength. Since then my life has changed drastically.”
On behalf of the STL staff and all Wahoo fans alike, we are here to support you, Felicia!
