Wright named All-American, first since

Senior guard Monica Wright received high accolades this week, as she was not only named the WBCA National Defensive Player of the Year but also became the first Cavalier to attain First Team All-American status.

Wright finished her career as Virginia's all-time leading scorer and ranks third on the ACC's all-time scoring list. This past season, she averaged 23.7 goals per game, which ranked seventh in the nation and first in the ACC.

The guard started and played every game of her college career, and just this past season, averaged 6.5 rebounds and racked up 3.7 steals per game. With such statistics, Wright finished among the national leaders in this category, ensuring her place in Virginia program history.
