Quarles averaged 14 points, three assists and 2.5 steals in the two games, while LaRue posted a pair of double-doubles.
Up and down day for wrestlers
The Virginia wrestling team split two ACC meets Sunday, losing at N.C. State before rebounding to crush Duke.
Coming off an impressive win against Maryland Wednesday, the Cavaliers (4-6, 1-2 ACC) fell to the Wolfpack (10-4, 4-0) in Raleigh, 27-9. Hours later, the Cavs thumped the Blue Devils (3-11-1, 0-3) in Durham, 31-7.
Virginia fifth-year senior Steve Garland, the nation's sixth-ranked 125-pound wrestler, was the only Cavalier to beat both his 'Pack and Devil opponents.
Softball slogs through tough road trip
The Virginia softball team hung in against No. 11 Oregon State Sunday but absorbed a 2-0 extra-inning loss that capped a 1-4 stint at the UNLV Classic.
The Cavaliers (1-6) played seven scoreless innings against the Beavers, but senior pitcher Stacey Zagol allowed a pair of unearned runs in the eighth.
Welsh shuffles coaching staff
Cavalier football Coach George Welsh re-
arranged his coaching staff yesterday.
Defensive coordinator Rick Lantz's tasks now will include coaching the linebackers, a post he held at Virginia from 1993-98. This shift moved Cav linebackers coach David Turner over to the defensive tackles. Ty Smith, who coached the defensive line last season, will handle the defensive ends.
Art Markos, Virginia's defensive backfield coach, will replace André Powell as wide receivers coach. Powell moves to running backs coach, bumping Bob Price to Markos' old spot coaching the defensive backs.
Dunleavy out indefinitely
Duke freshman swingman Mike Dunleavy will be out of action indefinitely after being diagnosed with mononucleosis yesterday.
"He was having a great year for us and has been an integral part of our team," Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a press release. "We look forward to having him back before the end of our season"
