Story by Chris Graham

Waynesboro native and former UVa. star Cory Alexander will join new play-by-play man Dave Koehn as the color analyst on Virginia men’s basketball radio broadcasts this fall.

Alexander replaces long-time analyst Jim Hobgood, who had filled the role alongside former play-by-play announcer Mac McDonald for the past 12 seasons.

The Koehn-Alexander team will debut with the Cavs’ Nov.16 season opener against VMI.

Alexander is a 1995 graduate of the University of Virginia and ranks eighth on the UVa. all-time assists list with 401 assists in his three seasons in Charlottesville and 24th on the career scoring list with 1,286 points (15.1 points per game).

Alexander was a first-round draft choice of the San Antonio Spurs in 1995 and spent seven seasons in the NBA with four teams.
