CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The Virginia Cavaliers opened ACC play with a 96-62 loss at No. 2/2 North Carolina at Carmichael Auditorium on Monday evening.
Virginia fell to 10-5 overall and 0-1 in ACC play, while the Tar Heels remained unbeaten at 18-0 and 3-0 in the league.
UNC charged out the locker room to start the game with a 15-0 run. Plagued by turnovers and poor shooting, Virginia didn't score its first bucket until 14:06 on a lay-up and free throw by freshman Monica Wright (Woodbridge, Va.). The Tar Heels pushed their lead to as many as 26 points at halftime, 51-25.
In the second half, Virginia opened the stanza with a 10-2 run to come within 18, 53-35. While UVa shot much better, converting 43 percent of its field goals, the Tar Heels pushed their lead to 36 points before it was over.
Sophomore Lyndra Littles (Washington, D.C.) led the Cavaliers with 19 points. Wright was the only other player in double figures with 17 points.
Four Tar Heels netted double digits, led by 17 from Camille Little and Erlana Larkins. Ivory Latta had 14 points, while LaToya Pringle added 11 points.
Overall, UNC out-rebounded UVa, 59-48. The Cavaliers shot 37 percent from the field (24-65), while UNC also shot 37 percent (34-92). Virginia turned the ball over a season-high 32 times.
