The East Carolina Pirates and the Virginia Cavaliers will both be trying to pick up a win on Tuesday when they battle at John Paul Jones Arena.

ABOUT EAST CAROLINA (7-2): Junior guard B.J. Tyson became the 28th player in school history to top 1,000 career points during last Saturday’s victory over North Carolina Central and enters the contest with 1,007 points. Tyson ranks second on the squad by averaging 14 points per game with senior guard Caleb White leading the way with a 15-point average that includes superb 3-point shooting (25-of-49). Junior forward Kentrell Barkley averages 12.6 points per game while senior center Andre Washington has a team-best 24 blocked shots to go with averages of 9.8 points and a team-leading 8.6 rebounds.

ABOUT VIRGINIA (7-1): The Cavaliers continue to play pesky defense while allowing just 46.9 points per game and holding opponents to 34.7 percent shooting from the field and 29.3 percent from 3-point range. Senior point guard London Perrantes averages team-best figures of 10 points and 3.5 assists but the team is missing the go-to type player it had last season in NBA second-round draft choice Melvin Brogdon. Freshman guard Kyle Guy (7.5 scoring average) can provide some offensive pop but he has averaged just four points in the past four games after averaging 16 over the previous two.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Cavaliers listed as 21-point favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 115.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Virginia saw a 24-game homecourt winning streak end last Saturday and the No. 12 Cavaliers attempt to start a new run of success when they host East Carolina on Tuesday. The Cavaliers dropped a 66-57 decision to West Virginia to see the sixth-longest homecourt victory streak conclude and the disappointing performance included a season-worst 14 turnovers.

Virginia coach Tony Bennett faced a dejected squad in the locker room and he attempted to keep the spirits up. “I told them, ‘We’re seeking quality. We’re trying to improve and be the best we can, and this is obviously not the end of the world, not the end of the year. You just learn from this, grow from this,'” Bennett said at his postgame press conference. The Cavaliers certainly have a chance to begin a new streak against the Pirates, who have played just one road game and lost 76-64 to Charlotte. East Carolina enters with a three-game winning streak but its 7-2 record is mainly the product of a soft schedule.

East Carolina won its last outing, a 69-56 result against Eagles on December 03.
