The Virginia women's basketball team hopes to rebound from Monday night's tough 78-74 home loss against then-No.
The Virginia women's basketball team knows it could have beaten Florida State earlier this season. When the team hosts the Seminoles tonight, it will have the chance to prove it. "So many shots rimmed out in the Florida State game," coach Debbie Ryan said.
The Virginia women's basketball team lost its sixth conference game of the season, 84-74, against Clemson at Littlejohn Coliseum Sunday afternoon. Against the Tigers (10-13, 3-5 ACC), the Cavaliers rallied back from a 19-point deficit late in the first half but still trailed 42-29 at halftime.
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.

The Virginia women's basketball team came back from a 16-point deficit late in the first half to secure a 74-63 victory against Longwood yesterday at John Paul Jones Arena. The Cavaliers started off the game cold, shooting just 8-for-35 in the first half.
The Virginia women's basketball team will take on Tennessee tonight in Knoxville with the hopes of winning its first game against a power conference school. The Cavaliers (2-0) last defeated the Lady Volunteers in 2008, when they shocked then-No.
