Squad struggles in two weekend tilts

Hokies fall by margin of 35

With 3:06 remaining in the second half and Virginia leading in-state foe Virginia Tech 68-35, Cavalier fans Sunday afternoon were focused on the only thing that the Virginia women's basketball team had not yet accomplished in the game: the 70 points needed to satisfy the Canes Challenge. Sophomore guard Lexie Gerson scored that 70th point at the 2:22 mark in the second half, giving a towel-waving Virginia fan base the chance not only celebrate the Canes Challenge but also the team's 72-37 victory - its first conference win in five tries. The Cavaliers (12-9, 1-4 ACC) were determined to prove that their previously winless record in ACC play was not representative of the team's ability on the court, especially following a heartbreaking 75-77 overtime loss to No.
