The Virginia women's basketball team opened their ACC slate a month ago on the road against Maryland. That game ended in a 79-55 drubbing by the Terrapins. Their second ACC road game against Miami today was closer, but the result was the same: a loss. The Cavaliers moved to 1-2 in the ACC and 9-5 overall after the 58-52 loss to the Hurricanes at the Bank United Center.
Junior Kelsey Wolfe led all scorers with 18 points and contributed six steals, but it wasn't enough to prevent a 13-6 Miami run at the end of the the second half that took the home team from a one point deficit to a six point lead. Virginia didn't score a single point for a span of nearly eight minutes as the Hurricanes established a lead they would not relinquish.
Senior Telia McCall was the only other Cavalier to score in double digits notching a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds, though junior Ataira Franklin chipped in 9 points to come close. Senior China Crosby had seven points and four assists, while sophomore Sarah Imovbioh and senior Simone Egwu both added four points each and fourteen rebounds between them.
The Cavaliers now travel to Atlanta for a game against Georgia Tech (8-6, 1-2 ACC) on Thursday at 7pm. The game will be televised on ESPN3. Virginia is home next Sunday to host North Carolina State (8-7, 0-3 ACC).
