uva athleticsUVA women’s basketball senior guard Jocelyn Willoughby (East Orange, N.J.) has been named to the Preseason All-ACC teams in both the official Blue Ribbon Panel Preseason Poll as well as in the preseason polling of the conference’s coaches.

Willoughby finished last season ranked seventh in the conference in rebounding (8.2 per game) and 13th in scoring, averaging 14.8 points per game, the first player to lead the Cavaliers in both categories since Monica Wright did so in 2010. Willoughby was named to the 2019 Google Cloud/CoSIDA Academic All-District III team, the first UVA women’s basketball player to earn the honor since Jenny Boucek in 1996. She became the 35th player in program history to score 1,000 points in her career and was voted to the All-ACC Academic Team for the third-straight year.
