Cavs seek win against Tigers

The No. 24 women's basketball team will face ACC opponent Clemson tonight at the John Paul Jones Arena.

The Cavaliers' (15-6, 4-3 ACC) four-game win streak came to a close last Sunday with a 64-57 loss against Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, despite the efforts of freshman guard Lexie Gerson, who scored a career-high 15 points. Senior guard Monica Wright posted her third-lowest scoring total of the season with 13 points in the loss, snapping a five-game streak during which she scored 20 or more points. With a stronger performance against the Tigers, Wright may pass North Carolina's Ivory Latta for fifth place on the all-time scoring list in the conference. Wright needs 18 points to reach that milestone.

Clemson (11-12, 2-5 ACC) currently sits in last place in the ACC but enters tonight's contest riding a two-game win streak, after defeating both N.C. State and Boston College. Prior to those victories, Clemson endured an eight-game losing skid that began just before the start of the new year - including five losses to conference opponents. The Tigers, who have not beaten Virginia since 2004, also look to earn their first ACC road win of the season tonight.
